First Allen Distinguished Investigators named
Date:11/17/2010

njamin Hall Endowed Chair in Basic Life Sciences, University of Washington ($2.0 million)
Project Title: Ethomics: A Technology-driven Approach to Study the Genetic and Neural Basis of Behavior

Using the fruit fly, or D. melangaster, Professor Dickinson is working to develop new instruments to expand the body of knowledge in the field of measuring and quantifying complex group behavior in the relatively new field of study called "ethomics."

  • Christof Koch, Lois and Victor Troendle Professor of Cognitive and Behavioral Biology, California Institute of Technology ($600,000)
    Project Title: Evaluating Connectomes Using Measures of Complexity and Synergy

    Professor Koch studies information processing by neural systems, using computational and theoretical approaches. He will specifically analyze the locomotion network in a worm, C. elegans, with an eye toward assessing the information flow in the neural network that leads to a clearly measurable behavior.

  • Jennifer Nemhauser, Assistant Professor, University of Washington ($1.4 million)
    Project Title: Reprogramming Cells with Plant-derived Signaling Pathways

    Dr. Nemhauser aims to reverse engineer a cell-to-cell communication system from plants, construct a modular molecular signal processing toolbox for synthetic biology, and to use the toolbox to genetically engineer the single celled organism S. cerevisiae, to exhibit multi-celled behavior.

  • Mark Schnitzer, Associate Professor & Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Stanford University ($880,000)
    Project Title: Massively Parallel Brain Imaging in Mouse Models of Human Brain Disease

    Professor Schnitzer's research will strive to develop miniaturized, mass-producible, fluorescence microscopes that can create real-time imaging of neurons in the brain. The data will be used to unravel the neural and cellular basis of schizophrenia.
