Choi to speak on drug remedies
Dennis Choi, a neuroscientist who has done groundbreaking research on brain and spinal cord injury, will discuss “When the Mind Fails: The Search for Pharmaceutical Remedy” on Wednesday, April 2.

Choi’s speech, beginning at noon in the Jones Room of the Woodruff Library, is part of the University’s Life of the Mind Series. The free, lunchtime lectures showcase a leading faculty member each month and are framed in a way that non-specialists can understand.

Choi is executive director of the Neuroscience, Human Nature and Society Initiative within the university-wide strategic plan, and director of the Comprehensive Neuroscience Center at Woodruff Health Sciences Center.

The event includes a keynote address by Vice President and Deputy to the President Gary Hauk. Two panel discussions will explore “From Emory into the Community: Alumni and Emeriti Experiences” and “Working With and In the Community: A Student and Community Partner Perspective.”
