Dr. Nicolas Bazan

Nicolas G. Bazan is a neuroscientist and eye researcher, author, educator, mentor, entrepreneur, music enthusiast, and art lover. His research focuses on neurodegenerative diseases, aiming to understand endogenous modulation of neuroinflammatory signaling, with a lifelong quest to help people affected by stroke, Alzheimer's disease, pain, blindness, and other diseases. He has written two books: The Dark Madonna: A Fable of Resilience and Imagination and Una Vida: A Fable of Music and the Mind, from which this movie is based.

Nicolas G. Bazan received his MD from the University of Tucuman School of Medicine, Argentina (1965) and was a postdoctoral fellow at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons and Harvard Medical School (1965–1968). He became the founding director of the LSUHSC Neuroscience Center of Excellence in 1989. In 2017, Dr. Bazan was named Foreign Adjunct Professor of Neuroscience at the prestigious Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. His work has been ground-breaking, including discovery of novel lipid mediators involved in vision, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease.
