Donna Jackson Nakazawa is an award-winning journalist and internationally-recognized speaker whose work explores the intersection of neuroscience, immunology, and human emotion. In her new  book, The Angel and the Assassin, Donna Jackson Nakazawa tells one of the most paradigm-shifting stories in the history of medicine—the tale of a tiny, powerful, enigmatic cell, microglia, in determining brain health, and their potential to transform human well-being, including breathtaking discoveries by MacArthur Fellow Beth Stevens, Ph.D, at Harvard, who first unveiled the true role of these long-ignored cells. Carey Goldberg, host of CommonHealth, WBUR, Boston, will moderate the conversation between Ms. Jackson Nakazawa and Dr. Stevens.
