MSNseminars (Mount Sinai Neuroscience seminars) is a seminar series that hosts leading postdoctoral fellows from around the country who give a seminar and meet with the neuroscience community at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

We are very excited about launching this new initiative—run by our neuroscience postdocs—in order to promote diversity and give selected postdocs a chance to showcase their work. In addition to presenting in a departmental seminar, MSNseminar speakers meet with faculty, and have lunch with our graduate students and postdocs. This series is an excellent opportunity for senior postdocs to present their work and network with colleagues and peers at the School of Medicine.
