Revolutionary new approaches and technologies that make organ tissues transparent are helping researchers to see clearly into the brain’s circuitry like never before. At the annual Beatty Memorial Lecture, Dr. Karl Deisseroth (D. H. Chen Professor of Bioengineering and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University) will discuss how his lab’s discoveries may assist neuroscientists to achieve the goals of mapping the architecture of the brain and uncovering how changes to the brain underlie disease. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn what impact Dr. Deisseroth’s work may have for the future of science, engineering, and medicine. RSVP: please register online.

The Faculty of Science extends congratulations to alumnus John O'Keefe who was named co-winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, for his contribution to the discovery of cells that constitute the brain’s ‘inner GPS,’ which makes it possible to orient ourselves in space. Dr. O’Keefe worked under the supervision of Professor Ron Melzack (Department of Psychology) and received his PhD from McGill in 1967. READ MORE
Above all, I remember his laughter and the mischievous twinkle in his eye. He would say something uniquely insightful, and immediately cover it up with a chuckle. Only later would one realize the depth of his learning, as layers upon layers of wisdom emerged from a casual conversation in the hallway.
