Tomomi Shimogori, RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan
After obtaining PhD at Chiba University, I did my post doc training with Dr Elizabeth Grove in University of Chicago. I focused to understand molecular mechanisms of cortical area patterning in mouse brain. I developed mouse in utero electroporation, one of the technique heavily used in many neuroscience labs these days, which made us able to manipulate interest of genes with precise spatiotemporal control. After becoming PI at RIKEN BSI, I have been focusing on how early life experience influence neural circuit formation and function.
