Neurotechnology Dinners

Neurotechnology Dinners

NIMET co-hosts monthly Neurotech Dinners in conjunction with the Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases. Each month an exciting speaker is recruited to give a talk about their research. Dinners usually begin at 5:00 pm. Due to the current social distancing mandate the Neurotech dinners have moved online. We hope you can join us!
