Neutrino University

Neutrino Summer Lecture series

The Neutrino Physics Center Summer Lectures are informal presentations 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 undergraduate and graduate students.

Regularly scheduled Neutrino University lectures will be held on Thursdays at 1:00-2:00pm CT, with options for both in-person and Zoom attendance. Please subscribe to our mailing list to get lecture announcements and Zoom connection information here (the name of the mailing list is “NEUTRINO_UNIVERSITY”). For further information, you can email the organizers.
