Archived Seminar: The Epigenetic Basis of Memory Formation and Dysregulation in Memory Disorders
Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC
About This Seminar
Dr. Lubin’s research team focuses on the study of molecular genetic mechanisms that govern how gene expression programs control memory formation in the healthy brain. Her research will help us to better understand how these epigenetic mechanisms are disturbed in neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy and provide potential treatment options to improve memory dysfunction associated with these disorders.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Center for Neurobiology Research and the Center for Glial Biology in Health, Disease, and Cancer. The Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar Series, which runs annually from September to May, has featured leading biomedical researchers from throughout the country since the program began in 2012. Presented virtually via Zoom primarily for research and clinical audiences, the lectures are also open to all members of the Virginia Tech community including graduate students, undergraduates, faculty, and staff, as well as the public.
