No-Bell Prize

Melbourne Neuroscience Institute Grand Finale Event!

Just how difficult is it for brain and mind researchers to speak without jargon when describing their research? Join our MC, Dr Shane Huntington (Einstein a go go, RRR) and our expert judges as we challenge five of our brightest academics to speak in layperson’s terms when describing their research.

Join us as we 'go up against the bell' in a competition to crown the 2018 No-Bell Prize!

This will be the Melbourne Neuroscience Institute Grand Finale Event. We invite you to a celebration of the Institute and the 10 years of achievement.
