3:00 PM

Dr. M. Elizabeth Ross, Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience, Director of the Center for Neurogenetics, and Chair of the Neuroscience Graduate Program at Weill Cornell Medicine will be presenting her work entitled: Assessment of Human Genetic Variation in Neurological Disorders. Dr. Ross and her team study how genes direct the construction of cellular organization and connectivity of brain. Three major projects encompass: 1) neural tube formation, 2) the role of cell cycle regulation in patterning brain, and 3) cytoskeletal regulation in motile neurons required for migration and synaptogenesis.
