The Malvin and Eleanor Mayer Lectureship in the Life Sciences took place Wednesday, November 7, 2012. The speaker was Dr. Claudia Bagni from VIB, a Life Science research institute in Flanders, Belgium. She spoke on "Synaptic Plasticity in the Context of Fragile X Syndrome."
The Mayers’ goal in creating this lectureship was to bring unusually distinguished scholars in the field of the life sciences to campus, and to foster true scholarship and intellectual exchange between these scholars and MIT faculty and students. The Mayers in the mid-1960's established this lecture at both MIT and Wellesley College.
