Natalia De Marco Garcia, PhD
Assistant Professor Brain and Mind Research Institute Weill Cornell Medical College
Education and Training:
- 2007-2013: Postdoctoral Fellow, Gordon Fishell Lab, Smilow Neuroscience Program, NYU School of Medicine, NY
- 2007: Ph.D., Thomas Jessell Lab, Columbia University, NY
- 1999: B.S. in Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology, University of Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Current or Past Study:
Recent experimental evidence suggests that patterned neuronal activity acts together with transcriptional programs to regulate the assembly of neuronal circuits during development. In the Fishell lab I was studying the role of neuronal activity in the establishment of morphology, laminar targeting and connectivity of GABAergic interneurons.
