Virtual Seminar – Michael Gandal, MD, PhD – “Brain Gene Networks Link Complement Signaling with Convergent Synaptic Pathology in Schizophrenia”
November 6, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
About the Speaker: Dr. Gandal is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA and the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. He received his BS in engineering (biomedical computation) from Stanford University and his MD/PhD in bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania, using electrophysiology to investigate neural circuit dysfunction in mouse models of schizophrenia and autism. He completed his residency training in psychiatry at UCLA and a postdoctoral fellowship in neurogenetics in the lab of Dan Geschwind, characterizing the genetic contributions to shared gene expression alterations in human brain across several major psychiatric disorders. Gandal joined the faculty at UCLA in 2017.
