Michael Greenberg, MD, PhD

Professor of Neurobiology, Harvard University

Host: Thomas Sudhof


Dr. Greenberg's research seeks to understand how neuronal activity controls gene transcription to affect critical steps in synapse and neural circuit development. In addition to providing insight into the process of brain development, this research has contributed to the understanding of neurological and psychiatric diseases in which these processes have gone awry.
