*Kathleen Poblocki is a former nurse and current community volunteer. She has served on MCW’s Women in Science Committee for nearly five years, and also helps the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and St. Ann’s Intergenerational Center in Milwaukee.

*Sara E. Santiago is the co-owner and President of Roll Mobile, a mobile web development and marketing agency that she founded in 2009. She was recognized as a “Forty under 40” by the Milwaukee Business Journal in 2011.

The Neuroscience Research Center was founded in 2010 with the goal of enhancing neuroscience research at MCW Medical College. From clinicians to basic scientists, leading specialists are studying prevention and treatment of more than thirty neurological conditions including Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and other movement disorders, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), traumatic brain injury, memory loss and addiction.
