Our keynote address will be actor Lea DeLaria. DeLaria is a comedian, actress, and jazz musician; DeLaria plays the role of “Big Boo” in Orange Is the New Black. She was the first openly gay comic to break the late-night talk-show barrier with her appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show in 1993. DeLaria has performed stand-up comedy for more than 25 years and is a prominent figure in the world of LGBT comedy. She began her career billing herself as "That [expletive] Dyke,” explaining that when she walked down the street, people would yell that at her.  DeLaria integrates musical performance into her stand-up comedy, focusing on traditional and modern be-bop jazz. In 2001 she released a CD of jazz standards called Play It Cool. This was followed by the album Double Standards in 2003 and by The Very Best of Lea DeLaria in 2008. DeLaria has appeared in a number of TV and film roles, including Edge of Seventeen, The First Wives Club, and One Life to Live. She has appeared in a number of on and off-Broadway shows, including: The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and On the Town. She currently plays Carrie “Big Boo” Black in the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black.  For more information on this year’s keynote speaker, visit her website at www.delariadammit.com/.

Indianapolis, IN 46202

Science on Tap: Deciphering the neural code: Identifying novel treatments for mental illness through understanding brain function.  Presented by: Christopher Lapish, Assistant Professor, Psychology Recent advances in the neurosciences allow us to assess brain function with a high level of precision. With this ability, an understanding of the basic mechanisms the brain employs to encode various aspects of cognitive function are beginning to emerge. This is particularly important as a number of neuropsychiatric disorders are characterized by deficits in cognitive function and this pathology is not adequately treated with current approaches. As we learn more about brain function, and how it encodes information about our internal and external environment, how can this information be leveraged to treat disorders such as schizophrenia and addiction? 5:00 p.m. – Socializing – Light Appetizers & Cash Bar  5:40 p.m. – Presentation, Q & A to follow Parking: The closest place to park is Lot 85 (directly across Blackford Street from the Science and Engineering Lab Building) or in Gateway Garage at Blackford and Michigan. Download a map of IUPUI Parking There is no charge to attend the event. Seating is limited so please register today.  Sponsored by the School of Science & the School of Science Alumni Association.

Save the Date: March 7, 2015

This continuing education event for IUPUI alumni originated in the School of Liberal Arts as “Dean’s Day”. The goal was to focus on one appealing topic which would allow the School to showcase faculty to alumni. In 2009, the alumni associations from other schools on the IUPUI campus decided to partner with Liberal Arts to open the event up to more alumni and showcase faculty from several schools on campus. The event is supported by the IU Alumni Association, the Purdue Alumni Association and the IUPUI Conference Fund.
