SFNKC News from the Web


The Society for Neuroscience Kansas City chapter was established in 1974 by the late Dr. Fred Samson (D.O., Ph.D.). In the forty years since its inception, the Kansas City chapter has dedicated its time and resources to developing and fostering a neuroscience community in the greater Kansas City metropolitan area, as well as promoting brain awareness and education to the general public. By bringing together clinicians, professors, postdoctoral fellows, students, and community members, SFNKC has sought to engage our local community through events such as the Brain Bee and the Brain Discovery Fair. To learn more about what our chapter offers, you can reach us through the contact form found at the link above.
