ONE LIFE. ONE MIND. ONE HOPE.
In the one life we are given, we have the opportunity to give to others with our time and talent. And so it is that Dr. Nicolas Bazan gives hope to the world with his life's dedication to neuroscience, as he works to preserve and protect our greatest gift - the mind. Dr. Bazan, an internationally recognized speaker and professor, is the Director of the LSUHSC Neuroscience Center of Excellence. His story, Una Vida, is one with a mission - to raise awareness, inspire hope & find a cure for diseases of the brain (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke, epilepsy and traumatic brain injury).
Born in the tiny town of Los Sarmientos in Tucuman, Argentina, Nicolas Bazan's defining moment was witnessing an aunt suffer a seizure while walking him to a music lesson when he was a young boy, putting him on the path to becoming one of the world's premier neuroscientists.
"It is this hope that I wish to share with others through Una Vida. It has allowed me to express my thoughts and emotions surrounding neuroscience research and the exploration of cellular elements and molecular switches that underlie the components of the mind and the eyes. To be able to impart these views to others and to provide readers with the hope and optimism that the story of Una Vida ultimately presents is equally as important and rewarding as the pursuit to understand, prevent, and cure." -Dr. Nicolas Bazan
