Keynote Speaker: Dr. Rasband is a Professor and the Vivian L. Smith Endowed Chair in Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine. He also the Director of the Neuroscience graduate program, in which he contributes to the teaching of several courses. Dr. Rasband’s research focuses on the mechanisms of formation and maintenance of nodes of Ranvier. His lab has identified the roles of key structural proteins involved in the assembly of nodes and has elucidated the function of these proteins in neuroglial interactions, demyelinating neuropathies, and following injury.
Keynote and Workshop: Julia Buntaine, a New York-based artist and editor of SciArt Magazine, has training in both neuroscience and the studio arts. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of New York University and Johns Hopkins University, and her international exhibits include shows in New York City, Amherst, Princeton, London, Toronto, Knokke, Sofia, and elsewhere. She states, “Beginning with biological form or data, my work departs into the world of aesthetics as I manipulate the idea through the use of scale, metaphor, material and form. Unlike articles and raw data, scientific ideas in the form of art inherently demand subjective judgment and interpretation, and my goal as a science-based artist is to provide my viewer an alternative way to understand the wonders of biology we have discovered in ourselves”
