Dr. Michela Gallagher delivers 2018 Luttge Lectureship

Michela Gallagher, Ph.D., delivered the sixth annual William G. Luttge Lectureship in Neuroscience on Thursday, March 15 during the McKnight Brain Institute’s celebration of Brain Awareness Week.

Gallagher, who directs the Neurogenetics and Behavior Center at Johns Hopkins University, investigates cognitive aging through the window of individual differences, and her lab is examining not only cognitive decline but also cognitive resilience.

The Luttge Lectureship, established and sponsored by the McKnight Brain Research Foundation, honors the memory of the late visionary neuroscientist Bill Luttge, Ph.D., founding director of the McKnight Brain Institute.
