DIBS Distinguished Lecture & Symposium


Marlene Behrmann, PhD

Marlene Behrmann, PhD, of Carnegie Mellon University, will give the 2022 DIBS Distinguished Lecture on Clinical Research on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, during a virtual symposium. The event is free, open to the public and expects to continue the DIBS tradition of expanding the understanding of neuroscience research and its impact on our lives. The event will begin with a virtual poster session featuring posters from Duke trainees, including graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and residents. Following that, three Duke faculty will give TED-style talks aimed to show the breadth of neuroscience research, followed by a panel discussion with the speakers. The event will culminate in Dr. Behrmann's keynote address on "Hemispheric organization in the service of visual recognition: Emergence and plasticity." An open question and answer session with Dr. Behrmann will round out the event. Register here:
