Description: The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) presents the Integrative Medicine Research Lecture Series. The series provides overviews of the current state of research and practice involving complementary health approaches and explores perspectives on the emerging discipline of integrative medicine.

David Ginty, Ph.D., is the Edward R. and Anne G. Lefler Professor of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School and an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Dr. Ginty’s work is focused on the development, organization, and function of neurons that stimulate the skin and mediate our sense of touch and pain perception. Dr. Ginty’s lecture will provide insight from novel tools and techniques developed by him and his team that explore the somatosensory system and the way specific neurons inform our understanding of certain sensations.
