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 Thursdays 4:00-5:15 pm in Curia II (WH2W) unless stated otherwise (see below). Snacks and light beverages will be provided at the end of the lecture!
