    Negar Asadian

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurobiology

    BioDedicated to unraveling the mysteries of the nervous system, I am a versatile neuroscientist with extensive expertise spanning from cellular and molecular biology to in vivo experimentation.

    My academic journey began with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry. Subsequently, I pursued a Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, Melbourne University, focusing on uncovering novel treatments for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) by targeting the TAM receptor pathway.

    As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University's Department of Neurobiology, I am currently investigating the role of the cerebellum in learning and memory. Utilizing innovative methodologies such as magnetic eye tracking and in vivo electrophysiology, my aim is to decipher the neural mechanisms underlying cerebellum-dependent learning and its modulation through experience (plasticity).

    Beyond research, I am committed to fostering scientific advancement and education. I have mentored students at both Stanford University and the Florey Institute, served as the Students Of Florey Institute's Education Officer, chaired symposium sessions, and contributed to various scientific presentations.

    Prior to my academic endeavors, I served as a Medical Laboratory Scientist at Melbourne Pathology, where I honed clinical laboratory skills and leadership abilities.

    Driven by curiosity and a passion for discovery, I am dedicated to pushing the boundaries of neuroscience and contributing to the collective understanding of the brain's complexities.
