Neuroscience & Non-Communicable Diseases Seminar Series
Speaker: Dr Nathalie Dehorter, Eccles Institute for Neuroscience, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU
Dr Nathalie Dehorter obtained a PhD in Neuroscience in 2010 in France and pursued her research as a Research Associate at the CSIC in Alicante, Spain and at the Medical Research Council, King’s College of London, UK. In 2017, she took up a position as group leader at the Eccles Institute of Neuroscience at The John Curtin School of Medical Research, The Australian National University. The goal of her research is to gain insight into the developmental processes involved in establishing neural microcircuits and their functional impairments in neurological disorders. She has a multi-disciplinary approach using high-level tools in molecular biology, genetics, electrophysiology and imaging. A major contribution in the field of neuroscience has been to determine the crucial role of specific classes of interneurons to circuit homeostasis and plasticity.
All welcome. Drinks and nibbles from 3:30pm, seminar starts, 4pm.
