Neurobiology Invited Seminar Series

Our research program seeks to understand the mechanisms underlying the development of the visual system, and in the past, the cerebellum. Retinal ganglion cells from each eye project through the optic chiasm to the same and opposite side of the brain to form a circuit that implements binocular vision. We use a battery of static and dynamic microscopical techniques, cellular assays, and molecular approaches to dissect cell fate specification, axon pathfinding, and synapse formation in the establishment of this circuitry.
