MedBeat: Thursday lecture centers on understanding the mind through genetics
The former head of the National Institute of Mental Health will talk on Thursday in Roanoke about the implications of using what is known about a person’s genetics to predict behavior.
Steven Hyman, a Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Medicine, will discuss the benefits and risks of combining genetics and neuroscience.
His talk is part of the Maury Strauss Distinguished Lecture series at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC.
