Eric Morrow, MD, PhD: “Mechanisms of Human Brain Development and Degeneration Through the Lens of Rare Genetic Disorders”
Eric Morrow, MD, PhD, is a physician-scientist and molecular neurologist with a focus in neurodevelopmental disorders. He is Canadian-born and completed his MD and PhD at MIT and Harvard Medical School. He also conducted postdoctoral training in genetics, neurology, and psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Morrow is currently the Mencoff Family Professor of Biology at Brown University, and founding Director of the Brown Center for Translational Neuroscience (CTN). He is a recipient of several awards, including the Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering (PECASE), and membership in the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP). Dr. Morrow will present an overview of the Brown CTN. He will also present new data on basic neuronal mechanisms, as well as translational studies with the goal of improving treatments for neurogenetic disorders.
