Description: Neuroscience Seminar Series

Dr. LaMantia is currently Director of the George Washington Institute of Neuroscience and Professor of Pharmacology and Physiology at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. This new Institute brings together 24 researchers from across George Washington’s campus and Children’s National Medical Center. Dr. LaMantia started his career as a graduate student in the laboratory of Pasko Rakic at Yale University. His post-doctoral training was with Dale Purves at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis and Duke University. Upon finishing his training, Dr. LaMantia became an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology at Duke. He then moved to University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Chapel Hill as an Associate Professor in the Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology. While at Chapel Hill he became Associate Director, NC Center for Mental Health Research and Professor, Department of Cell & Molecular Physiology. In 2010 he was appointed to his current position at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Dr. LaMantia's laboratory explores genetic and molecular mechanisms of early forebrain development, studying signaling and transcriptional regulation of forebrain stem cell identity and the role of forebrain developmental regulatory genes in behavioral and psychiatric diseases including schizophrenia and autism. In addition, his laboratory studies molecular mechanisms that specify neural stem cells in the embryonic as well as adult nervous system, with a focus on the specification of the neural stem cell in the olfactory epithelium. The mechanisms that maintain this stem cell provide a model for considering neuronal regeneration as well as degenerative disorders that disrupt the ongoing replacement of olfactory sensory neurons such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. His scientific services include several editorial boards, chair/member of numerous NIH study sections including external advisor to the intramural research program at NINDS. In his presentation, Dr. LaMantia will discuss specification of olfactory and forebrain stem cells during early embryonic development.
