Neurobiology Interest Group

The NIH is home to a large neuroscience research community, including investigators based in NINDS, NIMH, NICHD, NIDCD, NEI, NIEHS, NIDCR, NIA, NIAAA, NIDA, NHGRI and NCI. The goal of the Neurobiology Interest Group is to promote interaction between Institutes and laboratories pursuing diverse approaches to the study of the nervous system. Areas of research interests include structural, molecular, cellular, developmental and systems neuroscience. 

The Neurobiology Interest Group is a bimonthly seminar series organized by fellows and graduate students for fellows and graduate students. The seminar series is designed to provide a platform for fellows and senior graduate students from institutes and centers within the NIH to present well-developed research projects. These seminars will be similar to formal job talks and are a great opportunity to gain experience before going on the job market. Forty minute seminars will be followed by questions and an informal networking session.
