Excellent meeting and program today, but where were all our members? Victoria Hanlon opened with the business part of the meeting, followed by Christy Wilson who described the Women's Fund's relationship to the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. Our by-laws, IRS required documents and banking skills come from the Foundation so that we can focus on what we like to do - learn about charitable organizations and give out grants!
Kudos to Nancy Jo Cappetta and Gillian Gillies who put together an exciting program. Jacopo Annese, Ph.D. gave a slide presentation on his development of The Brain Observatory which is focused on both research and outreach. Under an NIH (National Institute of Health) grant, Dr. Annese and his staff are putting together a library of three dimensional MRI brain scans of healthy and diseased brains. His interests also include individuals with special artistic skills such as painting and music and he contemplates offering generational neuroimaging genealogies.
