A December to Remember Gala @ Balboa Bay Resort
Dec 2 @ 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM

The annual gala, A December to Remember, raises funds to support Alzheimer’s disease research at UCI MIND, Orange County’s only state and federally funded Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.  Widely respected among the scientific community, UCI MIND is one of only 30 such centers in the nation and has been awarded highly competitive grant funding each year.  However, additional funding is necessary to move researchers closer to prevention, treatment, and a cure. The annual gala aims to generate the additional, vital philanthropic support required to take Alzheimer’s disease research to the next level.

The 2016 A December to Remember gala, held at the luxurious Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, attracted over 300 philanthropists and raised $375,000 for Alzheimer’s disease research at UCI MIND.  Save the date for our 2017 event to be held on December 2, 2017!  For more information, please contact Linda Scheck, Director of Development at 949.824.3251 or lscheck@uci.edu.

Barclay Lecture Series: Miguel Nicolelis @ Irvine Barclay Theatre
Feb 27 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

The Distinguished Lecture Series on Brain, Learning and Memory was founded in 1995 by James L. McGaugh, Founding Director of the CNLM. The lectures are an integral part of the CNLM’s outreach mission and are intended for a lay audience. The series is widely regarded as the most successful public lecture series at UC Irvine.

Jim was the series’ inaugural speaker in 1995 and has been the series distinguished speaker on numerous occasions. Series speakers are world-renowned scientists who have made significant advances to brain research, particularly in the area of learning and memory. The speakers are chosen not only for the reputation of their research, but also for their ability to convey the importance and implications of that research to a lay audience.

The Public Lecture Series is currently sponsored by the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, in partnership with the Ayala School of Biological Sciences, and the UC Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders. Public lectures have been held each year since 1995, and attract capacity audiences of community members, professionals and high school and college students.

Lectures are held at the Irvine Barclay Theatre (adjacent to the UCI campus) at 4242 Campus Drive, Irvine. Parking is provided in an adjacent structure for $10.

Lectures are free of charge. No tickets or reservations are required. You may simply come to the theatre on the night of the lecture. Late arrivals may not be seated, so please arrive early.

Attendees are provided with ample opportunity to interact with and ask questions of the speakers. Lectures are generally 45-50 minutes long and are followed by about 20-30 minutes of questions from the audience. Each lecture is preceded by a special backstage reception in honor of the speaker, which is attended by Friends of the CNLM, as well as CNLM Fellows and other UCI faculty and administrators. To inquire about how to join the community support group and receive invitations to the backstage receptions, please click here.

After the lecture, cookies are served in the lobby, where audience members have a chance to meet and interact with the speaker one-on-one.

Barclay Lectures are uploaded to our YouTube channel and available for viewing at any time.
