Stavros Niarchos Foundation Brain Insight Lectures

An older man, Richard Axel, MD, Nobel laureate and Zuckerman Institute codirector, stands in front of a slide showing some of his research on the brain.

At our free public lecture series, eminent Columbia professors share their research as it relates to brain. These lectures are the scientific cornerstone of our Stavros Niarchos Foundation Teacher-Scholar program, a competitive program that introduces middle- and high-school science teachers in NYC to cutting-edge brain science for the duration of a school year.
