Farah D. Lubin is an American neuroscientist and Associate Professor of Neurobiology and an Associate Professor of Cell, Developmental, and Integrative Biology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham within the School of Medicine. Lubin is the Principal Investigator of the Lubin Lab which explores the epigenetic mechanisms underlying cognition and how these mechanisms are altered in disease states such as epilepsy and neurodegeneration. Lubin discovered the role of NF-κB in fear memory reconsolidation and also uncovered a novel role for epigenetic regulation of BDNF in epilepsy leading to memory loss. Lubin is a champion for diversity at UAB as the Co-Director of the Roadmap Scholar Program and as a faculty mentor for several institutional and national programs to increase retention of underrepresented minorities in STEM.
