Tune in weekly to our virtual series “Seventeen Minutes of Science” every Tuesday at 11am PST / 2pm ET where we go live on Facebook with a new guest each week to talk about how science and biotechnology is woven into their lives for (you guessed it) 17 minutes!
For episode 40 of 17 Minutes of Science we are joined by Dr. Anne Hart, a neuroscience professor and Chair of Neuroscience at Brown University.
Dr. Anne Hart obtained her Ph.D. in Neuroscience at UCLA with Dr. S.L. Zipursky working on cell fate specification in the Drosophila eye. She undertook her post-doctoral training in C. elegans genetics with Dr. Josh Kaplan in the Department of Molecular Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Hart joined the Center for Cancer Research at the Massachusetts General Hospital and the Harvard Medical School Department of Pathology as an assistant professor and taught numerous classes in genetics and neuroscience. She moved to the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University in the fall of 2009. She has served as faculty in neuroscience courses at the Marine Biological Laboratories and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology. Currently, she is the Speaker for the MBL Society. Her research focuses on the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying neurological disease, sensory signaling, sleep, and fatigue.
Dr. Hart will be joining us to discuss her research using C. elegans which focuses on the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying neurological disease, sensory signaling, sleep, and fatigue.
