How does stress impact neurogenerative diseases? University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Daryl Bosco, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Neurology, will explore this question during a lecture sponsored by Assumption’s Center for Neuroscience on Thursday, February 27 at 11:30 a.m. in Ballroom B of the Tsotsis Family Academic Center, 500 Salisbury St., Worcester. 

Professor Bosco earned a B.S. in chemistry from the State University of New York, Binghamton, and a doctorate in bioorganic chemistry from Brandeis University. At Brandeis, she used Nuclear Magnetic Resonance to research enzyme dynamics. Prior to her work at the University of Massachusetts, Dr. Bosco was an instructor of neurology at Harvard Medical School where she researched amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
