Alan I. Leshner to serve as 2016 George and Barbara Bush Lecturer

5:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Harold Alfond Forum
Biddeford Campus
Alan I. Leshner

Free and open to the public

This year’s lecturer will be Alan I. Leshner, Ph.D., chief executive officer emeritus of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and former executive publisher of the Science family of journals. Leshner will speak about “Neuroscience and Society: Progress Since the Decade of the Brain.” 

 In 1990, then President George H.W. Bush designated the 1990s as the “Decade of the Brain” in order to raise awareness about the benefits of brain research. As his biography below indicates, Leshner was at the forefront of the research and scholarship initiated during that period — research that continues to this day. 

We encourage the entire UNE Community and their guests to attend this event, the latest in a series of outstanding lectures supported by President and Mrs. Bush. For additional information or to arrange for special seating needs, please contact kvose@une.edu.
