Looking for Memory Outside the Brain: a special virtual event hosted by UCLA Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology
Memory is commonly associated with brain activity, but recent evidence indicates that memory can be expressed by single cells, inherited, and possibly encoded by molecules. The following speakers will offer fresh perspectives on memory based on new research from their labs:
David L. Glanzman, Ph.D.
Distinguished Professor, UCLA Integrative Biology and Physiology
Professor, Neurobiology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
Michael Levin, Ph.D.
Vannevar Bush Distinguished Professor, Biology
Director, Allen Discovery Center at Tufts University
Associate Faculty, Wyss Institute, Harvard University
Coleen T. Murphy, Ph.D.
James A. Elkins, Jr. Professor in the Life Sciences
Professor, Molecular Biology and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics
Director, Paul F. Glenn Laboratories for Aging Research, Princeton University
Director, Simons Foundation’s Collaboration on Plasticity and the Aging Brain
Introduction by Rachelle H. Crosbie, Ph.D., Chair and Professor of UCLA Integrative Biology and Physiology; Professor, Neurology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
Following the presentations, attendees will be invited to ask questions of the speakers during a moderated Q&A.
