Michael Friedlander, Ph.D., founder and former chair of the University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of Neurobiology, will present a lecture at UAB on Friday, Feb. 14, and also will address undergraduate students interested in medical careers on major changes coming to the Medical College Admission Test.
Friedlander, now the associate provost for health sciences at Virginia Tech, was a member of the Association of American Medical Colleges committee that wrote the new MCAT, as well as the AAMC committee on the Scientific Foundations for Future Physicians.
Friedlander’s undergraduate talk, sponsored by the Undergraduate Neuroscience Society, will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, Room 405 in Campbell Hall, 1300 University Blvd. The society will present him with the first Undergraduate Neuroscience Society Distinguished Scholar Award.
He will then present “The Future Depends on the Past for Neurons and Individual Synapses” at 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, Room 170 in the Bevill Biomedical Sciences Research Building, 845 19th St. South.
Friedlander came to UAB in 1980 as an assistant professor in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics. He became the founding chair of the Department of Neurobiology in 1996 and was named the Evelyn F. McKnight Professor of Learning and Memory in Aging in 2004.
