The BSBE Department, IIT Kanpur, is organising this annual workshop series to expose budding scientists to advances in contemporary topics in biosciences and bioengineering. The two day workshop includes popular lectures, scientific talks, and a problem-solving session. This year, with the theme “Neural Systems”, the workshop aims at bringing experts from diverse disciplines within neuroscience, from circuits to behavior, to discuss the latest research and to expose students from diverse backgrounds to challenging problems. An informal setting will provide students and faculty the opportunity to interact and will help students in developing an interest in neuroscience.
