Lecture by Catherine Dulac (Harvard University) organized by Ivan Gordeli (ENS, Paris), Alexandre Pouget (University of Geneva) and Peter Latham (University College London), as part of the IBL 2019 Meeting, with the support of the Paris IAS
Catherine Dulac is Higgins Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Lee and Ezpeleta Professor of Arts and Sciences, Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator at Harvard University. Her research group uses molecular, genetic and electrophysiological techniques to explore the molecular and neuronal basis of innate social behaviors in the mouse. Two major lines of research are currently being pursued in the laboratory: 1) several projects at the molecular, cellular and systems levels in order to investigate the architecture and functional logic of neuronal circuits underlying social behaviors. 2) exploring the phenomenon of genomic imprinting in the brain, and the role of this mode of epigenetic modification in brain development and adult brain function.
