Description: Dr. Nirenberg made numerous contributions in Neuroscience that have been pivotal for advancing our knowledge in such fields as neural adhesion molecules, neural differentiation, opiate receptors and morphine tolerance, voltage-dependent calcium channels, and, more recently, homeobox genes and the development of the embryonic nervous system. In his career as a neuroscientist, Dr. Nirenberg published seminal papers, and mentored researchers who later became prominent neuroscientists, and he used virtually every innovative technique that would help quench his constant thirst for good answers and better questions.

This symposium will pay tribute to Dr. Nirenberg’s research and contributions in the field, featuring talks by prominent neuroscientists who trained in his laboratory, as well as colleagues who share his passion and efforts to understand the biological basis underlying the development and function of the nervous system.
