CNLM Ambassador Program
The CNLM Ambassador Program, led by Manuella Yassa, Director of Outreach and Education, aims to advance public understanding of brain science through outreach and educational activities. The engine of the program is the group of more than 50 UC Irvine undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who design, execute and evaluate meaningful activities on campus and in the community throughout the year. The program provides meaningful leadership opportunities for UC Irvine brain scientists as well as professional development training in scientific communication, educational program outcome design and evaluation.
The committees include:
- Brain Bee Committee
- Brain Explorer Academy Committee
- Communications Committee
- K-12 Events Committee
- Older Adult Events Committee
- Professional Development Committee
- Program Outcomes Committee
Sleep to feel, to think, and to remember
We spend nearly one-third of our lives asleep. Despite its universal nature and apparent necessity, why we sleep remains largely a mystery. Sleep to feel, to think, and to remember is a virtual panel discussion featuring three UCI experts studying how sleep affects our emotions and the way we think, and how stress impacts a good night’s rest. This event will spark exciting conversations and provide a fun interactive experience with both early-career and established UCI scientists. We hope you will be able to join us on Tuesday April 13, 2021, 6:00pm - 7:00pm!
