KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Marina Picciotto

This year our keynote speaker is Marina Picciotto, Charles B. G. Murphy Professor of Psychiatry and Professor of Neurobiology and of Pharmacology; Assistant Chair for Basic Science Research, Dept. of Psychiatry from Yale University.  She will present a talk titled "From Molecules to Behavior: Role of Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors in Nicotine Addiction, Food Intake and Depression".

The goal of Dr. Picciotto's research team is to understand the role of single molecules in complex behaviors related to addiction, depression, and learning. She and her colleagues use molecular genetic and pharmacological approaches to link the biochemical, cellular, and anatomical levels of investigation to behavior. Of primary interest is the role of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in brain function and development.
