About the Speaker: Ted Abel, Ph.D., is the Director of the Iowa Neuroscience Institute, Roy J. Carver Chair in Neuroscience, and Chair of the Department of Neuroscience and Pharmacology in the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine.  A member of the National Academy of Medicine and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, his research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of memory storage and the molecular basis of neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders. He has been a pioneer in the use of molecular and genetic approaches to define how neural circuits mediate behavior. He co-directs the Hawkeye Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center, launched in 2021, which is focused on the diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and amelioration of intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Harry Waisman, MD, PhD

About the Harry A. Waisman Memorial Lecture: Waisman joined the University of Wisconsin faculty in 1952 as an associate professor of pediatrics and was promoted to professor in 1958. He became director of the Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Memorial Laboratories for research in developmental disabilities in 1963. The laboratories grew from an initial grant from the family of President John F. Kennedy, which Waisman was largely instrumental in obtaining.
