Edward M. Callaway, The Salk Institute for Biological Studies, La Jolla, USA
Ed Callaway is Professor and Audrey Geisel Chair in the Systems Neurobiology Laboratories at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California. He received his Bachelors degree from Stanford University in 1984 and a Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology in 1988. Studies in Dr. Callaway's lab have revealed important insights into the organization and function of the visual system and principles of the specificity of connections and contributions of specific cell types in the cerebral cortex.
His lab has also pioneered novel molecular, genetic and viral tools for revealing the detailed structure and function of neural circuits. Present studies capitalize on these and related tools to understand the neural circuit mechanisms that underlie the functions of the cerebral cortex. Dr. Callaway was elected as a Fellow of The American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2010 and to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2012.
