The Chicago Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience (CSfN) is a local affiliate of the National Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience. The CSfN is composed of academic and industry based scientists who are interested in the field of neuroscience. This includes researchers, teachers, students and interested public. Our membership includes individuals on faculty at all of the major academic centers and many of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries in the Chicago area.
The Chicago Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience is dedicated to:
- providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and information and ideas between Chicago-area neuroscientists;
- offering educational resources and opportunities for teachers, students and the public at large through community outreach.
Each spring, the Chapter sponsors an Annual Meeting designed to bring scientists, teachers, students and the public together to learn about and discuss the latest advances in Neuroscience research and education.
We also sponsor the annual Chicago Brain Bee which gives area high schools students an opportunity to learn and demonstrate their knowledge about brain science. Contact the Chapter Secretary for more information.
Other upcoming seminars and Neuroscience related events in the Chicago area can be found in our calendar. If you are interested on posting an event from your institution in our calendar please contact the Chapter Secretary. Announcements of other research and educational opportunities are posted under Programs and Institutions.
