Neuroscience Lecture Series
The Neuroscience Institute runs several lecture series throughout the year. Our guest speakers are renowned scientists who travel nationally and internationally to share their expertise with the Pittsburgh neuroscience community.
The Andrew Carnegie Prize in Mind and Brain Science
Established by the Carnegie Corporation of New York as part of its centennial celebration, the The Carnegie Prize in Mind and Brain Science recognizes trailblazers in the brain and behavioral sciences whose research has helped advance the field and its applications. The prize also awards a one-year graduate fellowship to a CMU student, who will typically have the opportunity to visit the recipient's lab.

The Victor M. Bearg neuroscience lecture series is sponsored by Victor M. Bearg ('64), a Mellon College of Science graduate in physics. Mr. Bearg has generously endowed this Neuroscience Institute speaker series to bring dynamic lecturers to our community.
