Presidents’ Letter Dear Friends: What a busy time this has been, with our installation and the trip to Boston for the Leadership Workshop. Lynne Charap & I had a great trip and met the most wonderful people. The other trainees came from San Dieguito Chapter and chapters from Arizona, Florida, New Jersey and Los Angeles. We toured the university and saw the library and the Rose Art Museum. We met professors and students alike who were warm and welcoming. We even learned a thing or two that hopefully will help to improve our chapter. Our new season will be starting on Tuesday, August 20th. Our Opening Program Committee headed by Pauline Green & Ruth Epner with Leslie Goldstein, Bobby Sue Schreibman, Lynne Charap, Joan van Dam, Gerri Brech, Renee Bloom, Sharon Gordon, Lila Levy & Renee Rosenthal is already hard at work & has a super program in place. As you can see from the first page of this bulletin it will be a very entertaining program with Myron Uhlberg, who was in the first graduating class at Brandeis University in 1955 and has become an award winning author. I hope you all will plan on attending our opening program so we can get this new season off to a great start. We also will have many important guests attending, so let’s show them how we support our chapter! Warmest Regards,


Western Region Trainees

Rodal, a faculty member at Brandeis since 2010, is winning the fight. The Pew Scholar designation brings with it $240,000 to continue her neuroscience research for the next four years. Last year, she won the NIH New Innovator Award and the March of Dimes Basil O’Connor Starter Scholar Research award. Specifically, Rodal’s research focuses on growth factor signals. For example, the tissue in your finger secretes growth factors that are taken up by the neuron that activates movement in your fingers. These growth factors are transported in membrane-bound packets up your arm and to your spinal cord to promote neuronal survival.

Avital Rodal

Much of the work in the lab explores processes associated with neurodegenerative diseases. If those signals are depleted because your finger is no longer secreting the growth factors or because something’s wrong with the transport, that neuron dies and you may get a neurodegenerative disease like ALS or Alzheimer’s. Her lab has emulated, observed and manipulated these processes in flies. Rodal, who was recently named a Pew Scholar in Biomedical Sciences, studies how neurons set up elaborate structures tailored to send and receive electrical signals over distances and through complex network.

Member Focus Meet Dee Hiller

Dee grew up in London, England where she met her husband, Harvey, when he was serving in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. They married in 1969 and made San Diego their home. During the past year Dee retired from her position as Senior Buyer at Qualcomm and was persuaded by long time friend Renee Rosenthal, to attend a Brandeis Membership Lunch. Although she had no intention of joining and was not pressured to do so, she was so impressed by the genuine friendliness of the members and the quality of the programs that she not only joined, but also signed up for several of the Study Groups. Dee is enjoying finally having time to do lots of reading, mess around in the garden, work on crossword/ Sudoku, knit squares for donated blankets, get together with friends, stay out of rush hour traffic and generally waste time.
