Baltimore Brain Series

The Baltimore Brain Series (BBS) is a multi-institutional talk series coordinated between the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the University of Maryland-Baltimore, and Johns Hopkins University, in which outstanding postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are competitively selected to present their ongoing research in neuroscience at one of the partnering institutions. 

We aim  to provide a collegial setting for extraordinary early career researchers to showcase their work and receive constructive feedback, as well as to foster inter-institutional collaborations within the Greater Baltimore Area neuroscience community. Participation not only allows for practice and honing of presentation skills, but it also opens up career opportunities. For example, a post-doctoral fellow who gave a talk with BBS was invited back to the institution for a faculty interview and chalk talk.
