JOINT SEMINARS IN NEUROSCIENCE WILL COMMENCE
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29th, 2015
Speaker: Loren Looger, PhD, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Janelia Research Campus, Ashburn, Virginia
Host: Baljit Khakh, PhD, Professor, Neurobiology and Physiology, David Geffen School of Medicine, Associate Director for Research, Brain Research Institute, UCLA
Title: To be announced
Dr. Looger uses protein engineering to create tools -- including neurotransmitter detectors, improved labels for in vivo imaging, designed receptors, and rewired neural circuits -- to study the brain. His lab combines computational and evolutionary methods to create new reagents to characterize and manipulate the assembly and function of neural circuits.
5:00pm. Neuroscience Research Building Auditorium, UCLA
