Mary Beth Hatten, the Frederick P. Rose Professor and director of the Laboratory of Developmental Neurobiology at Rockefeller University, will deliver the Syracuse Neuroscience Organization (SNO)’s Distinguished Lecture, “New Directions in CNS Migration,” on April 22 at 1 p.m. in Gifford Auditorium, located in Huntington Beard Crouse Hall on the Syracuse University campus.
Hatten’s lecture is open to the public; parking is available in SU’s paid visitor lots.
Hatten is an expert in neural mapping and migration. Research in her laboratory focuses on development of architecture in the developing mammalian brain, in fate specification during early steps of brain development and in cellular migrations that occur in later periods of development.
SNO is an interdisciplinary and cross-institutional organization comprised of more than 60 faculty members of Upstate Medical University’s neuroscience, psychiatry and behavioral sciences, and physical medicine and rehabilitation departments; and from SU’s biomedical and chemical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science, physics, biology, psychology, and communications sciences and disorders departments. CVR focuses on basic and clinical research in vision. It is also cross-institutional, with 15 faculty from Upstate and SU.
