Lavra Lecture with Professor Nancy Forger

Saturday, May 19: "Epigenetics and the Brain.” 
Georgia State University's Professor of Neuroscience and Director of The Neuroscience Institute, Nancy Forger, will come to the Lavra for a special presentation on epigenetics.  She argues that genes are just the beginning of our formation as humans and that new research in epigenetics has the potential to explain how experiences, the environment, and even what your mother ate while you were in the womb affect who you are today.
