Blue Brain Seminar – Cell type classification and circuit mapping in the mouse brain

Blue Brain is delighted to announce a seminar series in Neural Computation beginning in April 2019.

We welcome as our first speaker, Hongkui Zeng, PhD, who is the Executive Director of Structured Science in the Allen Institute for Brain Science.  Hongkui will present ‘Cell type classification and circuit mapping in the mouse brain.’

Since joining the Allen Institute in 2006, Hongkui has led several research programs, including the Transgenic Technology program, the Human Cortex Gene Survey project, the Allen Mouse Brain Connectivity Atlas project, and the Mouse Cell Types and Connectivity program. She is currently leading the Structured Science Division to develop and operate high-throughput pipelines to generate large-scale, open-access datasets and tools to accelerate neuroscience discovery.

Hongkui’s current research interests are in understanding neuronal diversity and connectivity in the mouse visual cortical circuit and how different neuronal types work together to process and transform visual information. She has broad scientific experience and a keen interest in using a combined molecular, anatomical and physiological approach to unravel mechanisms of brain circuitry and potential means for treating brain diseases.

The seminar is open to all at the Blue Brain offices in the Campus Biotech, Geneva.  Upon arrival at the Campus Biotech, please sign in at the Campus Biotech reception.
