Pittcon announce speaker for Wallace H Coulter lecture

The Pittcon Program Committee is extremely pleased to announce that Dr. Karl Deisseroth, the D.H. Chen Professor of Bioengineering and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, and Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, will deliver the Wallace H. Coulter lecture at Pittcon 2017.

Dr Karl DeisserothHis lecture “Integrated Brainwide Structural and Functional Analysis will focus on bioanalytical application. This dynamic presentation will take place on Sunday, March 5, in McCormick Place with a complimentary mixer and poster session immediately following.

Dr Deisseroth will discuss the development of optogenetics (a technology for controlling millisecond-scale activity patterns in specific cell types using microbial opsin genes and fiberoptic-based neural interfaces, all in freely-behaving animals including adult mammals).

He will also speak on the development of hydrogel-tissue composites (e.g. his CLARITY method  for creating composites of biological molecules in tissue covalently linked to acrylamide-based hydrogels, allowing removal of unlinked tissue elements to create transparency and accessibility to macromolecular labels; the resulting new structure allows high-resolution optical access to structural and molecular detail within intact tissues without disassembly).

He will also discuss the application of his methods to discover the neural cell types and connections that cause adaptive and maladaptive behaviors.
