Atlanta Science Festival 2016

On Saturday, March 26, our MD/PhD student, Saumya Gurbani, will host an exhibit at the Atlanta Science Festival’s Exploration Expo. Gurbani’s application for his exhibit, titled “What’s in your noggin? A look at MRI of the Brain,” was recently approved by the Expo Committee. Hosted in Centennial Olympic Park, the annual Expo drew in over 17,000 people last year; it is deemed the “biggest interactive science event Atlanta has ever seen.” The Expo, an event free to the public, is full of exhibits that aim to get people of all ages interested in science and its broader applications by using engaging hands-on activities. As the date of the Expo approaches, Gurbani will be putting the finishing touches on his presentation and narrowing down the logistics of his participation in this volunteer event. Exposing the people of Emory’s locale, Atlanta, to some of the science we work on every day in our lab is not only rewarding, but it deepens a general appreciation for science in our community. Gurbani will be proudly representing Emory Brain Imaging Group in his exhibitor’s booth just a few weeks from now!
