Famed neuroscientist Roger Nicoll, Ph.D., recently came to UAB to explain how he prevailed over great challenges in his life. Grad students in UAB’s Neuroscience Roadmap Scholars Program appreciated that, because they face challenges too. Learn about Nicoll’s tear-inducing speech, and the groundbreaking Roadmap program for underrepresented students, in The Mix.

editing the brain
Epigenetic changes are implicated in a host of neural conditions, from Alzheimer's-related memory loss to depression. Now, a revolutionary set of molecular editing tools are allowing scientists to alter the epigenome like never before. In The Mix, UAB neuroscientist Jeremy Day, Ph.D., explains how he uses these techniques in his lab, and why they could lead to an entirely new kind of therapy.
