Natural Science Fellows interact with renowned neuroscientist

Students in the Natural Science Fellows Program hosted Dr. Lise Eliot, a distinguished neuroscientist, to discuss her work on sex and gender differences in the brain (or lack thereof).  As one aspect of the Fellows program, students exchange ideas and network with world-renowned scientific researchers such as Dr. Eliot, author of “Pink Brain, Blue Brain” and “What’s going on in there?,” a best-selling book on neural development in the first five years of life.  Dr. Lise Eliot is Professor of Neuroscience at The Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine & Science.  During her visit, Dr. Eliot also met with students and faculty in the biology department, and guest lectured in a Principles of Neuroscience course. The Natural Sciences Fellows Program provides enriched academic experiences, personalized professional development training, and development in leadership roles that prepare them to be leaders in their field.
