Message from the President

Dear Members,

Our season will kick off with our Opening Breakfast November 2, 2018.

In addition to our Study Groups will include our favorite programs: Randy Del Lago’s program on the play “Gypsy” in December, an evening of music from students from Lynn University in January, and of course, the Book and Author Luncheon in March. These programs will support the new Brandeis National Committee capital campaign,

“Magnify the Mind” ~ Advancing Neuroscience Research   

With help from all of us, BNC will raise $500,000 this coming year to purchase a Resonant Scanning Two Photon Microscope. The new microscope will enable Brandeis researchers to observe brain activity in real time allowing our scientists to make new discoveries toward the understanding and treatment of  brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, and Autism.

Brandeis has long had one of the best neuroscience programs in the country. Nobel Prize winner Michael Rosbash, MacArthur, “genius” grant recipient Gina Turrigiano, and world-renowned neuro-scientist Eve Marder are all pioneers in the field.  Their breakthroughs have helped transform our understanding of Neuro-degenerative Diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Autism.

Each of us known many people who have been affected by these brain disorders, which makes this a very meaningful campaign for us to support.

And while our programs will benefit this important initiative they will also enlighten and entertain us throughout the 2018-2019 season.

Joan Tepper, President
