Members of the DIBS community are encouraged to register now for a very special event on Monday, Feb. 4, from 6:30-9 p.m., at UNC's Ackland Art Museum in Chapel Hill, featuring the famous drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal. Cajal is known as the father of neuroscience for his intense study of the brain's structure and function. The exhibition is making only one stop in the South, according to the Ackland. A New York Times reviewer described it as, "...one of the most unusual, ravishing exhibitions of the season." Sponsors are DIBS and the Department of Neurobiology in the Duke School of Medicine.

The event is free, but registration is required. Please click HERE to register!
