Graphic: Reindeer flying over a brain

From Dec. 13-17, the McKnight Brain Institute is hosting its first Trainee Reindeer Games to honor the work of our graduate students, postdocs and clinical fellows. Activities will take place daily from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the 5th Floor MBI Office Suite.

Each day, trainees will compete for gift cards and assorted prizes and will receive free lunch. Two lucky trainees will win a $1,000 prize that can be used for travel or technology to help with their studies.

Please note, trainees must be an MBI member to participate. If you are not already registered as an MBI member, the process is free, easy and can be accomplished by filling out the form below.
