About this Seminar

Radial progenitors serve as an instructive matrix to coordinate the generation and placement of appropriate numbers and types of neurons in the developing cerebral cortex. Tiled radial glial cells (RGCs) provide a template for the formation of the cerebral cortex and abnormalities in this intricate organization of RGCs lead to aberrant generation, placement, and connectivity of neurons in the human cerebral cortex. This presentation will address the molecular logic that instructs progenitor organization and neuronal connectivity necessary to guide the formation of an appropriately wired cerebral cortex. 

Additional Details

This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Center for Neurobiology Research. The Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar Series, which runs annually from September to May, has featured leading biomedical researchers from throughout the country since the program began in 2012. The lectures are also open to all members of the Virginia Tech community including graduate students, undergraduates, faculty, and staff, as well as the public.
