Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute Seminar Series Presents

Loren Looger, PhD 

Professor of Neuroscience at UC San Diego, and HHMI Janelia Researcher

Host: Keren Haroush


I will cover recent developments in sensors (calcium, glutamate, GABA, acetylcholine, serotonin, glucose, etc.), optogenetics (enhanced Magnets photodimerizers), correlative light/electron microscopy, AAV serotype evolution, and assorted other topics. I'm also happy to cover prospects in development of tools suggested by the audience either ahead of time or during the seminar. All reagents are available, and I will provide all my slides.
