September event preview: DCNN Seminar, Friedman lecture, and more
As summer shifts into autumn, a variety of new academic events of interest to members of the Neurology Department are taking place across Duke. Our DCNN seminar series resumes September 9 with Wayne State’s Sokol Todi, PhD, discussing “Protein context and ubiquitin processes in polyglutamine-dependent degeneration,” at 1 p.m. in room 103 of the Bryan Research Building. Ugur Ture, MD, will deliver the combined Neurosurgery/Surgery Friedman lecture from 7-8 a.m. in Duke North 2002 on Wednesday, September 4, just before our own Grand Rounds. Later that month, Neurosurgery’s Duke Brain Aneurysm Symposium for clinicians, survivors and their families, will be held at the Washington Duke Inn; read more or register here. And physician, author, and historian Victoria Sweet, MD, will read from her new book, Slow Medicine: The Way to Healing at 5:45 p.m. on Thursday, September 12, in the Great Hall of the Trent Semans Center. Read more about that here. Regular seminars from Duke’s Neurobiology Department also resume in the fall. View their schedule here.
