The MSTP and BMS graduate program are pleased to welcome Robert Malenka, MD, PhD as our Trefethen Visiting Professor for 2018. Dr. Malenka is visiting us from Stanford where he is a Pritzker Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences Director, Nancy Pritzker Laboratory Deputy Director, Stanford Neurosciences Institute Associate Chair, and a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences.
The tentative title for Dr. Malenka's lecture is "Synaptic plasticity: the brain's response to experience," and it will start at 4:00pm on the Parnassus campus, room to be announced later. Directly after the lecture, the MSTP will be hosting a dinner for MSTP students, faculty, and alumni at Millberry Union. More information about the lecture will be posted here closer to March, and an invitation to the dinner will be sent out to the MSTP community in February.
