MPFI to launch Neurotransmissions Podcast during Brain Awareness Week

Neuroscience stories from the lab and life – by scientists, for everyone.

Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) researchers Ben Scholl, Ph.D., Joe Schumacher, Ph.D., and Misha Smirnov, Ph.D. will launch MPFI’s new neuroscience podcast, Neurotransmissions, during Brain Awareness Week, 2016. The podcast will offer an engaging, accessible look inside the neuroscience research world, exploring current research topics and emerging technologies, public health issues in the domain of biomedical science, the intersection between science and society, and unique perspectives and experiences across generations of neuroscientists.

In the spirit of Brain Awareness Week, a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research, the first episode of Neurotransmissions will focus on the significance of basic brain research in addressing brain disorders and disease and advancing our world’s base of scientific knowledge. The featured guest for the series premier is David Fitzpatrick, Ph.D., Scientific Director and CEO of MPFI and basic research advocate.

Interviews have already been recorded with Eric Betzig, Ph.D. (2014 Nobel Laureate, Chemistry), Jeff Lichtman, Ph.D., Na Ji, Ph.D., Jason Kerr, Ph.D., Patrick Forcelli, Ph.D., and Leslie Vosshall, Ph.D. and will be released over the upcoming weeks.
