The Grossman Institute for Neuroscience, Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior at the University of Chicago hosts an annual free Neuroscience Public Lecture, designed to provide insights into key developments in neuroscience research to a diverse audience.
This year Jim Hudspeth, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator and Professor at Rockefeller University, will discuss exciting advances in our understanding of the inner ear.
Dr. Hudspeth is renowned for his ability to communicate both the remarkable properties that give rise to the senses of hearing and balance, and research advances in repair and regeneration of damaged inner ear sensory cells.
