Webinar Series – BRΛINCAST

 

BRΛINCAST is a weekly 30-minute conversation with inspiring people from all around the world sharing their love about the most fascinating thing that happened to your head…your brain! From the microscopic magic of a molecular scientist to the all-encompassing worldview of a philosopher, from up-and-coming PhD students to well-established professors, BRΛINCAST is open to everyone that’s curious! Nah, it’s not serious…the brain is too interesting to be serious! Just cast your brain aside (see what I did there?) and enjoy.

In between your clinics, your classes or your next grant application, grab your lunch, put on your headphones and just click and join!

Tune in every Monday lunchtime at 1pm

He also loves music and many other things that may seem irrelevant but are somehow connected. Most importantly he finds it extremely interesting that he writes this for himself using the third person…
