Jason Stein, PhD
University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
About the Speaker: Jason Stein is an associate professor in the Department of Genetics and the Neuroscience Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He received a BA from Northwestern University in the Integrated Science Program and then pursued post-baccalaureate work at the intramural program of the National Institute of Mental Health with Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg. He received his PhD in Neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles under Paul Thompson, where he worked on discovering the genetic influences on macroscale human brain structure. He also completed post-doctoral training at the University of California, Los Angeles under Dan Geschwind where he developed tools to evaluate how well neural stem cells model brain development and studied regulatory regions governing human neurogenesis. His lab uses populations of human neural progenitor cells, organoids, and mouse as a model system to study genetic influences on brain development and function.
