Andrew Huberman, University of California San Diego, USA
Andrew Huberman received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of California at Davis in 2004, where he worked on activity-dependent and guidance cue regulation of binocular circuit development. Andrew was a Helen Hay Whitney Postdoctoral Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Ben Barres in the Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University from 2005-2010. There, he developed genetic tools for probing the structure, function and development of visual circuits. Subsequently, he joined the faculty at the University of California, San Diego and currently holds appointments in the Department of Neurosciences, the Biology Section and the Department of Ophthalmology. His laboratory uses genetic and viral tools to understand the how visual circuits are organized and how they control behavior, as well as the genetic programs that underlie the assembly and degeneration of those circuits in the healthy and diseased brain.
