The Lausanne Neuroscience Seminars is a seminar series co-organized since 2006 by three Lausanne institutions:
- the University of Lausanne (UNIL)
- the University Hospital (CHUV)
- the Ecole Polytechnique Fédéral (EPFL)
The goal of this series is to bring to Lausanne eminent neuroscientists who have made outstanding contributions in their field and to develop a new attractive way for further integrating Lausanne's growing and dynamic neuroscience community.
An Aperitif follows each seminar.
