Seminar Title: 'Applications of high throughput single cell analysis and deep learning to iPSC models of Parkinson’s disease and neurotherapeutics'

Steven Finkbeiner

Professor Steven Finkbeiner, M.D., Ph.D. is a neurologist and neuroscientist, a professor at the University of California, San Francisco, and associate director at the Gladstone Institutes. He directs an academic research laboratory focused on neurodegenerative diseases and mental illnesses and directs the Taube/Koret Center for Neurological Disease, which focuses on collaborating with industry to develop neurotherapeutics.

Dr. Finkbeiner studies the molecular mechanisms that are responsible for learning, memory, and neurodegeneration. He aims to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms that control memory formation in neurons to discover crucial insights into the development and progression of neurodegenerative diseases—and the memory disorders that often characterize them.
