The purpose of the Carolina Neuroscience Club is to bring together students who share a common interest in the brain and nervous system. As a club, we will discuss courses, research projects, and other programs related to the exciting field of neuroscience. Members will investigate different approaches and technologies useful to learning about the brain. Throughout the year, we will invite professors and graduate students to speak about topics related to neuroscience, and to explain some of the various opportunities available for pursuing neuroscience after college. The club will also collaborate with other neuroscience related organizations to implement service and awareness projects, such as teaching elementary school students about the brain. Furthermore, the Carolina Neuroscience Club shall continue to be at the front of the push for the establishment of a new academic minor in neuroscience here at UNC. The club will be open to members from every department and will serve any student who is interested in learning about the brain and nervous system.
October 27, 2014 (Week 2 of Your Brain and Engineering)
Our host for this meeting will be Dr. Anne Taylor, an Assistant Professor in the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering and member of the Neuroscience Center. She will be discussing her work on microfluidic devices and how they are used to investigate axonal and synaptic cell biology. See you there!
CNC meets on a weekly basis on Mondays from 8-9PM.
