The M.R. Bauer Distinguished Lecturer Series
One of the highlights again this year has been the M.R. Bauer Distinguished Guest Lecturer Series. This program, now in its fifth year, brought to campus two outstanding people, both well-known neuroscientists-Rüdiger Wehner, professor of zoology at the University of Zürich, and Michael Bate, F.R.S., of the Department of Zoology at University of Cambridge in England.
Both guests spent a full week at Brandeis, giving public lectures, class sessions, and presentations at journal clubs, meeting with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and spending time in many neuroscience laboratories. Feedback from our students clearly indicates that it is a significant privilege to have these world-class scientists spending this amount of time on campus, getting to know the students, and providing invaluable advice to these younger scientists. Both weeks were very busy, informative, and enjoyable for all.
