INSPIRE Scientific Teaching Seminar with Dr. Erich Jarvis
April 25 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
The INSPIRE (IRACDA New Jersey/New York for Science Partnerships in Research & Education) Postdoctoral Program at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS) is hosting a scientific teaching seminar on Tuesday, April 25, from 11:30 am – 1 pm at Rutgers-Piscataway in the Kessler Teaching Building East Lecture Hall.
The seminar will be delivered by Dr. Erich Jarvis. Dr. Jarvis is a professor at Rockefeller University and HHMI scientific investigator. He uses song-learning birds and other species as models to study the molecular and genetic mechanisms that underlie vocal learning, including how humans learn spoken language. Dr. Jarvis is interested in how their brains, and ours, have evolved to produce this complex behavior. He also leads the Vertebrate Genomes project and is a primary contributor to the Human Pangenome Reference Consortium. Dr. Jarvis has published more than 200 research articles and is the recipient of prestigious NIH and NSF awards that celebrate his amazing contributions to his field and science as a whole.
Join us to connect with INSPIRE postdocs and faculty from across disciplines and schools and explore potential innovative collaborations. Students, postdocs, and faculty from all campuses are encouraged to attend.
Register to reserve a spot. Lunch will be served immediately after the seminar for RSVPs received by April 12, 2023.
