Neutrino University

Neutrino Summer Lecture series

The Neutrino Physics Center Summer Presentations are informal lectures for students at all levels interested in finding out more about neutrino physics in general, with some emphasis on neutrino experiments being carried out at Fermilab. The lectures are geared towards visiting undergraduate and graduate students.

Regularly scheduled Neutrino University lectures will be held on Wednesdays from 5:00-6:15 pm in Curia II (WH2W) unless stated otherwise (see below). All are welcome to attend the weekly Neutrino Social at the Fermilab User’s Center following the lecture, to encourage further discussions and follow-up questions.
