Anthony Zador, a Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) professor and the Alle Davis and Maxine Harrison Endowed Chair of Neurosciences, has been named a Gill Symposium Transformative Investigator for his work on MAPseq.
The prize honors researchers who have made exceptional contributions to cellular or molecular neuroscience. MAPseq (Multiplexed Analysis of Projections by Sequencing) is a revolutionary brain mapping method developed by Zador and his team. The tool barcodes thousands of neurons and determines their wiring patterns at single-neuron resolution.
The theme of this year’s symposium will be “Applying Cutting-Edge Technologies to Identifying Neuronal Circuits.” The symposium and award ceremony will be held at Indiana University Bloomington on September 26, 2018.
