UTSW Graduate student and Postdoctoral-Coordinated Research seminar series (GPCRs)

The GPCRs is a seminar series within the Neuroscience seminar series organized by the graduate students and postdocs at UTSW with support from the Neuroscience Department and Peter O’Donnell Brain Institute. Students and postdocs identify, invite, and host an accomplished scientist in the field of Neuroscience. They help organize the schedule, which includes individual meetings with faculty and students/postdocs, as well as an informal discussion with the speaker about their experiences as a scientist. The goal of the program is to empower the students and postdocs with leadership and networking opportunities that foster their growth as scientists and engagement with the larger Neuroscience community.
