Honoring leaders at WashU or others who have been impacted by our scientific research and/or clinical care

Named lectures provide an opportunity to host top level investigators from other institutions to visit, give a talk to share their expertise, and have informal conversations with members of the WashU community.  Some named lectures consistently feature speakers in Neuroscience.  Others occasionally host speakers on topics related to Neuroscience.
