Speaker: Manuella Yassa
Manuella Yassa is Director of Outreach and Education at the University of California, Irvine’s Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory. Manuella completed her undergraduate studies in neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University, followed by advanced training at JHU’s School of Education. She then worked as a middle school science teacher in Baltimore’s inner city public school system. This experience was a major influence that motivated Manuella to take on the role of leading the CNLM’s outreach and education programs. Manuella and her team, the CNLM Ambassadors, design, implement and evaluate outreach and education programs related to neuroscience, brain, learning and memory, mental health, development and aging on the UC Irvine campus and in the Orange County, California community.
