KCNI Speaker Series presents Dr. Rebecca Hodge – Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 1-2pm EDT

The Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics is excited to host Dr. Rebecca Hodge for this month’s Speaker Series on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 from 1 to 2pm EDT. Please join us and forward along!

Speaker: Rebecca Hodge joined the Allen Institute as a Scientist II in the Human Cell Types program in March of 2014. She is currently an Assistant Investigator and co-lead of genomics projects at the Institute. Prior to joining the Institute, she completed her postdoctoral research at the University of Washington and the Center for Integrative Brain Research at Seattle Children’s Research Institute. There, she studied the actions of transcription factors during the process of neurogenesis (the generation of neurons) in both the developing and adult brain. She completed her undergraduate training at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia where she received a Bachelor’s degree (B.Sc.) in animal physiology. Her graduate training was completed in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC. Her Ph.D. work at UBC focused on the role of growth factors in regulating neural stem cell development and the generation of neurons during early development of the mammalian cerebral cortex.

Topic: Mapping the human cerebral cortex using single nucleus RNA-sequencing
