Speaker: Michelle Monje-Deisseroth, Stanford University

Time: 10:00-11:30 a.m., March 6, 2024, GMT+8

Venue: Zoom Meeting ID: 818 3354 2226 (Passcode: 431441)


Dr Monje's research focuses on the intersection of neuroscience, immunology, and brain cancer biology with an emphasis on neuron-glial interactions in health and oncological disease. Her laboratory studies how neuronal activity regulates healthy glial precursor cell proliferation, new oligodendrocyte generation, and adaptive myelination. Moreover, Dr. Monje has discovered that neuronal activity similarly promotes the progression of malignant gliomas, driving glioma growth through both paracrine factors and electrophysiologically functional neuron-to-glioma synapses. Dr. Monje has successfully led several discoveries from basic research to clinical trials, which has been recognized with numerous honors, including an NIH Director's Pioneer Award, a MacArthur Fellowship, the Richard Lounsbery Award from the National Academy of Sciences, and election to the National Academy of Medicine.
