Dr. Hawi Jong Cheng Professor, NPB, PLM, and Center for Neuroscience Dr. Cheng is an MD/PhD. He received his MD from National Taiwan University and performed his residency in Pathology there before earning his PhD in Cell and Developmental Biology at Harvard. As his profile lists, Dr. Cheng studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms of axon guidance. Dr. Cheng's lab also tries to address whether abnormalities in axon pruning can lead to developmental neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and autism. ♦ January 29th

Dr. Wilsaan Joiner Associate Professor, NPB and Neurology Dr. Joiner is interested how we use different sources of information to aid behavior, ranging from visual perception to movement planning and updating. Specifically, we are interested in how external and internally-generated sensory information is integrated in healthy individuals, in comparison to certain disease and impaired populations (e.g., Schizophrenia and upper extremity amputees). ♦ February 12th

Dr. Johnathan Bragg Academic Coordinator, MMG Dr. Bragg earned his Ph.D. in Microbiology from UC Davis, where he studied development in the social bacterium Myxococcusxanthus. His research focused on identifying genes necessary for development and the cellular physiology of developing cells. While completing his Ph.D., he discovered a love of teaching and now lectures and coordinates for courses in MMG. Among his favorite topics for teaching are: bacterial genetics, bacterial communication, antibiotic resistance, and general scientific literacy. ♦ March 4th
