Chris Doe, "Development and function of locomotor circuits"

May 2, 2016 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Clark Center Auditorium S001

Free and open to the public.

Chris Doe is an HHMI Investigator at the University of Oregon, where he is Co-Chair of the Institute of Neuroscience. His lab investigates central nervous system (CNS) development. They are currently interested in (1) asymmetric cell division and self-renewal/differentiation of Drosophila neural stem cells, (2) temporal identity programs used to generate an ordered series of neural progeny from a single progenitor, (3) the generation of interneuron diversity and establishment of neural circuits that drive larval locomotion, and (4) the use of TU tagging—a method for covalently labeling nascent RNA in specific cell types within intact tissues—to identify temporally regulated or activity-regulated RNAs in the mouse CNS.
