Neuroscience Club

"The purpose of Neuroscience Club is to promote and foster the field of Neuroscience on Westminster’s campus.  Furthermore, the club aims to provide a forum for discussion of current Neuroscience topics and offer opportunities for interaction with professionals in the field, through conferences and speakers. Benefits to members include participation in the selection of Neuroscience speakers to invite to campus, participation in group journal article discussions, opportunities to interact with Neuroscience faculty outside the typical classroom setting, and opportunities to coordinate with other club members to attend neuroscience conferences" - Rachel Hoffman, Neuroscience club founder.
