“Serotonin and Sociability: From Mouse to Man”


Robert Malenka, MD, PhD
Pritzker Professor of Psychiatry and

Behavioral Sciences
Stanford University



The MSTP Distinguished Lecture Series is proud to announce the next and final speaker for the 2023-2024 academic year, Dr. Robert Malenka, Pritzker Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University​​​​​. Please see below for event registration.

Dr. Malenka’s work focuses on elucidating the mechanisms underlying the action of neurotransmitters in the mammalian brain and the molecular mechanisms by which neural circuits are reorganized by experience. His many contributions over the last 30 years have laid the groundwork for a more sophisticated understanding of the mechanisms by which neurons communicate and the adaptations in synaptic communication which underlie all behavior. He was trained as both a clinical psychiatrist and cellular neurobiologist and has been at the forefront of helping to apply the knowledge gained from basic neuroscience research to the treatment and prevention of major brain and behavior disorders.

We look forward to seeing you there!
