The Washington University Neuroscience Colloquium is the only seminar series at Washington University that represents the comprehensive Neuroscience Community. Twenty-three departments and centers participate in the Colloquium (see below for a complete list), and the series is coordinated by the Office of Neuroscience Research. Each participating department and center suspends its regular research seminar series during the two months of the Colloquium.
