Student-Hosted Seminar Series
Each year NUIN invites to campus several highly distinguished neuroscientists as part of the Student Hosted Seminar Series (SHSS). Potential SHSS speakers are selected and invited by a committee of NUIN students. Each event is organized by a team of two students from the committee that works closely with the speaker to arrange all aspects of their visit, including travel and itinerary. The SHSS Committee is advised by Dr. Mark Bevan from the Department of Physiology.
