Macrophages, Traffic Tactics, and the Hippocampus! *NO COVER*

  • Jul 24, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Get the skinny on under-appreciated "sentinel" cells called macrophages, pick up tricks to boost your errand-running efficiency, and investigate something called Growth Factor X's role in the brain - is it truly a hero or a villain?

Join us for a special super-science edition of Nerd Nite, featuring speakers from the University of Michigan's RELATE program.

Grab a drink, bring a friend, and immerse yourself in some of the research being done right in our very own fair city.

No charge this month, thanks to the kind folks over at the Ann Arbor District Library! Thanks, AADL!

Mark your calendars for the next NNA2 on Thursday, August 21! Topics coming soon... ;) If you felt inspired to speak at a future NN, fill out a quick-and-easy form to apply:

    I really liked the presentations. I did not know depression had such an impact on the hippocampus. All of the presentations rocked.

    Sad day! I wish I would be in town for this event. I will be in Arziona. I will catch the next event.
