On Thursday, April 25, Dr. Vishnu Suppiramaniam, professor, Department of Drug Discovery & Development and director, Center for Neuroscience Initiative, will present “Establishing a Center of Neuroscience at Auburn” at the Discover Auburn Lecture Series sponsored by Auburn University Libraries. The lecture will begin at 3 p.m. in the Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium on the ground floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.
Dr. Suppiramaniam will discuss how Auburn researchers will work in the new center to mitigate against mental, neurological and substance use disorders, which make up a substantial proportion of the world’s disease burden. A team of experts in chemistry, physiology, development, degeneration, and imaging of the brain are collaborating to develop a neuroscience center to increase fundamental knowledge about the brain and nervous system, and how that knowledge can be used to reduce the burden of neurological disease.
The public is welcome and a reception will follow the program.
