The Medicine by Design Global Speaker Series invites established and emerging international leaders in regenerative medicine to engage with our extraordinary community of researchers and clinicians. Medicine by Design, in partnership with the McEwen Stem Cell Institute, is pleased to welcome Gordon Fishell, PhD, Professor of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School and the Stanley Center at the Broad. The title of this talk will be, “The intimate dependence and remarkable precision of cortical interneurons.”
Hybrid event, with in-person and virtual options
- In-person will be held at the Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular & Biomolecular Research, Red Room.
- Virtual event links will be sent after registration.
More About gordon fishell:
Professor Fishell teaches in the department of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical center and is an institute member of the Broad institute. He was previously the associate director of the New York University (NYU) Neuroscience Institute, Julius Raines Professor of Neuroscience and Physiology at NYU, and director of the graduate program in neuroscience and physiology at the NYU School of Medicine. Professor Fishell completed his Ph.D. in neurobiology from the University of Toronto and conducted postdoctoral research at Columbia University and the Rockefeller University. His laboratory is interested in how the architecture of brain circuits are assembled, with a special focus on the diverse populations of inhibitory interneurons that are found in both pallial and subpallial telencephalon. Professor Fishell’s laboratory has spent the past 20 years working to understand the inhibitory cells that regulate excitatory signaling in the brain.
