Each week the Stanford Neurosciences Institute (SNI) invites a prominent scientist to come to campus and share their most recent work with the Stanford community. Each week, as part of the Neuwrite West podcast NeuroTalk, we engage the SNI speaker in an informal interview/conversation. This week, we talk to Gail Mandel about her long, and winding journey into neuroscience, what makes a neuron a neuron, how astrocytes contribute to neurological disorder, and more!
Dr. Mandel is a Senior Scientist at the Vollum Institute and a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Oregon Health and Science University, as well as an HHMI investigator.
Our conversation with professor Mandel can be streamed or downloaded here:
