Description: Neuroscience Seminar Series

Michael Ehlers is Vice President, Chief Scientific Officer of the Neuroscience Research Unit. Prior to joining Pfizer, Dr. Ehlers was the George Barth Geller Professor of Neurobiology and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Ehlers grew up rural Nebraska and earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Caltech. He holds M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he studied the regulation and trafficking of glutamate receptors. Dr. Ehlers’ research explores the interface between neuronal cell biology and the plasticity of neural circuits. His current efforts are focused on defining mechanisms of neuronal membrane trafficking and glutamatergic synapse plasticity implicated in Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, and autism. He is the recipient of numerous awards including the 2003 Eppendorf & Science Prize in Neurobiology, the 2007 John J. Abel Award in Pharmacology, the 2007 Society for Neuroscience Young Investigator Award, and the 2009 National Alliance for Schizophrenia and Depression Distinguished Investigator Award.
