Talk of the week
26 August 2021

We want to give the pepole who have driven the experiment a platform to present their work.
Have you ever been interested in the real story behind an article, including all the roadblocks and brickwalls? In our Journal Club-style presentation we invite the first authors of a recent article to present their work in a friendly environment and they can give a personal acount on the journey their study took. Furthermore, we provide a platform for the people who have driven the experiment to promote their own work and gain recognition by their peers. We have found that this exchange is an exellent opportunity for networking, troublehsooting, and for the fostering of new collaborations.
In the weekly "Drivers Seat Neuroscience talks" the people that have driven a study will present their work in a Journal Club format. The idea is a 10-15 minute presentation going through a recently published article followed by a personal account of the main acheivements and struggles conducting the experiments that have lead to the publication. The presentation will include the main figures of the selected paper and conclude with a slide on the major roadblocks that were encountered.
Topics will be very varied, including neuroscience, from disease modelling, stem cells, gene therapy, to technological advances and everything in between. Should you have a suggestion for a speaker or are interested in presenting please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
