Bridging minds at Neuroscience 2023

The Wu Tsai Institute (WTI) at Yale University will be in Washington, D.C., at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) annual conference, November 11-15.

Visit the WTI booth (# 3216) for an opportunity to meet Institute researchers from the biological, psychological, and computational sciences, as well as Institute Director Nick Turk-Browne and Center Directors, Kia Nobre, Daniel Colón Ramos, and John Lafferty. In addition to giving out custom swag, the booth will provide opportunities to learn about our open faculty positions; our undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral fellowship programs; our state-of-the-art tools and facilities; our new headquarters at 100 College Street; and about Yale and New Haven more generally.
