SWC Seminar Series: Circuit mapping with novel molecular genetic tools


Ground Floor Lecture Theatre | Sainsbury Wellcome Centre (link Map)
25 Howland Street | London | W1T 4JG | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Speaker: Ali Cetin, Senior Manager, Viral Technology, Allen Institute for Brain Science

Ali Haydar Cetin joined the Allen Institute in 2013 as an assistant investigator in the research and development group. Before joining the Allen Institute he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the lab of Ed Callaway at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, San Diego where he developed viral vectors for optogenetic manipulations and monosynaptic circuit tracing to understand the connectivity within the nervous system. At the Allen Institute he is leading research efforts focusing on the development, optimization and execution of novel methodologies in order to understand the network connectivity within the mouse visual system using molecular genetic approaches. Cetin received a B.S. in molecular biology and genetics from the Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey, and a Ph.D. at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg, Germany.
