It was great to speak at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, on February 12, 2019. The Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium is a student-run lecture series, and was a perfect opportunity to share how NIH turns discoveries into health!

A big thanks to Gerald Rubin (center), vice president of Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Chevy Chase, MD, and executive director of Janelia Research Campus, Ashburn, VA, for taking part in the NIH’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series (WALS). He delivered a fantastic talk titled “What the fly brain can teach us about the neural mechanisms of complex behaviors.” Afterwards, I presented him with a framed WALS certificate of appreciation. Joining us is Benjamin White (right), chief of the Section of Neural Function at NIH’s National Institute of Mental Health. The WALS lecture was held on January 30, 2019.
