The Brain Tumour Research Seminar Series (BTRSS) is a monthly seminar series for trainees in the field of brain tumour research, including undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and medical residents in the field of neuroscience.

The series aims to:
(1) create a space for brain tumour scientists to share knowledge and collaborate,
(2) help trainees work on their presentation skills and,
(3) bridge the gap between the research and clinical arms of the brain tumour field.

Trainees who present their work through the BTRSS receive presentation skills training and feedback by peers and principal investigators.
