Mainhattan Lectures in Neuroscience and Whatnot.

A virtual lecture series for the Frankfurt Area organized by Vinck Lab and friends in Ernst Strüngmann Institute for Neuroscience in Cooperation with Max Planck Society, Frankfurt, Germany

The purpose of this lecture series is to promote social socially-distant, climate-friendly scientific interactions, trans-continental collaboration and interaction. The lecture series emphasizes diversity of the speakers and includes speakers from different career stages, also giving a chance to early career researchers. The lectures will be available to the greater Frankfurt area, and part of them will be accessible to the global public (we will advertise this through twitter). We also ask speakers to meet with interested students and postdocs from our institute and interested faculty in Frankfurt. If you're interested in speaking please contact me.

We also welcome sponsors from neuroscience companies to grow our audience in the future.

Thanks to Ana Broggini, Cem Uran, Amr Faharat, Matteo Saponati, Marina Slashcheva and Jahangir Esfandiarii for leading the organization!
