O’Donnell Brain Institute Grand Rounds

Our take on Grand Rounds demonstrates our commitment to an integrated environment. Faculty and trainees from neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and neuroscience come together to learn how research advancements in brain science are being translated to the clinic.

In this interactive quarterly lecture series, we host internationally and nationally recognized leaders doing innovative work at the intersection of science and clinical care – from the neurobiology of central nervous system regeneration to the genetics of autism or schizophrenia.
