Student-invited speaker
Stephen Johnson Memorial Lecture
Jessica Tollkuhn, PhD
Associate Professor
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

December 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

presents, "Hormonal regulation of gene expression defines sex-variable biology" Talk abstract:  My lab studies how nuclear hormone receptors modulate gene expression in the brain at single-cell resolution, and how this affects development of and activity within circuits that mediate specific behaviors. We anticipate that the hormone-regulated genes we have identified will contribute to established sex differences in the incidence and etiology of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Hosted by:  Simona Sarafinovska, Din Selmanovic, and Genetics trainees & postdocs In-person only:  Connor…
