Here are some excerpts from a message from TUNA's first president, Ardalan Minokadeh:

TUNA intends to serve many purposes (too many to mention!) including:

  • invite speakers to the campus (seminars/discussions)
  • expose the Tulane community (and Greater New Orleans) to neuroscience and issues of the brain
  • expose majors or those interested to possible future careers or educational opportunities in the field
  • let Neuroscience majors meet each other!
  • provide support (academic, social, or other) for the growing number of Neuroscience majors on campus

Spread the word! This club is NOT restricted to just neuroscience majors OR undergraduate students. All students of any major or class/standing are invited and encouraged to join.

For more information about TUNA, please contact Dr. Katelyn Black. You can also view photos of TUNA's past outreach here.
