Neurology Grand Rounds

Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) Neurology Grand Rounds are held weekly on Wednesdays from 12:00PM-1:00PM via Zoom, unless otherwise specified. In-person Grand Rounds are held in the Marshall A. Wolf Conference Center, Hale Building of Transformative Medicine, 3rd floor. Talks are held throughout the year except during major holidays and a short summer recess in August.

This series features talks from invited speakers, including local, national and international experts. Talks cover all areas of neurology, including both clinical and translational research. Several times each year we also feature case presentations by BWH clinical faculty and research talks by our own residents, clinical fellows and new faculty members.

The organizers of BWH Neurology Grand Rounds are William Renthal, MD, PhD and Tracy Young Pearse, PhD. We welcome feedback and suggestions for future topics and speakers, which may be sent to or
