Just a note for Atlanta-area readers about two interesting lecture series.
One is the Suddath Symposium, a two-day event today and Friday at Georgia Tech focusing on DNA repair in human disease.Â This is an area that Emory is strong in: Gray Crouse, Paul Doetsch, Willian Dynan and Gang Bao are speaking (all on Friday).
Another is a series of talks from Emory investigators on http://www.raybani.com/ complex neurological diseases, being put on by the Department of Cell Biology.Â Four, one a week (originally), all on Wednesdays at 4 pm in Whitehead 400.
Yesterday: Peter Wenner (homeostatic mechanisms/scaling). Feb. 26: Shannon Gourley (stress hormones/distorted decision-making/depression). March 5: Andrew Escayg (sodium channels/inherited epilepsy).Â Kerry Ressler (fear learning/PTSD) was supposed to be last week but that was derailed by ice. So Ressler will speak Â on May 21, according to organizer Victor Faundez, who chose Picasso’s Guernica as the visual theme.
