Emerging Neuroscientists Seminar Series (ENSS) 2019

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour (SWC) brings together world-leading scientists to investigate how brain circuits generate perception, form memories, and guide behaviour. 

The postdocs of the SWC invite aspiring leaders in neuroscience to present their research to the SWC community in London as part of our Emerging Neuroscientists Seminar Series (ENSS). 

The 2019 winners are:

  • Dr Mark Wagner, Luo Lab, Stanford University
  • Dr Millie Rincón-Cortés, Grace Lab, University of Pittsburgh
  • Dr Dhananjay Bambah-Mukku, Catherine Dulac Lab, Harvard University
  • Dr Elizabeth Holly, Fuccillo Lab, University of Pennsylvania

We thank all the impressive applicants to this year's series.
