Brain expert to speak at event in Solana Beach

The Brandeis National Committee chapters of San Diego, San Dieguito and Rancho Bernardo will host Brandeis University’s annual “gift” to its members and to the community at large — University on Wheels. Every year, during winter break, the university sends its best and most popular professors to speak to BNC chapters around the country.

On Jan. 8, San Diego will welcome Dr. Melissa Kosinski-Collins, associate professor of biology. Professor K-C, as she is known, has the ability to make science exciting and understandable for everyone. “Your Brain on Aging — Cause and Effect of Neurological Disease” will explain why brains often function perfectly for many years, then suddenly begin to self-destruct at an alarming rate. Her talk is designed for the non-scientists among us. The event will be held at 11:15 a.m. at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club in Solana Beach (1505 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Solana Beach).
