In this new video, professors Matt Carter and Flavio Fröhlich talk about the role of books as trusted resources in teaching and research.
More about the professors featured in this video:
Matt Carter, PhD, is currently Assistant Professor of Biology at Williams College. His previous position was as a post-doctoral fellow in Richard Palmiter’s lab at the University of Washington using optogenetic techniques to study neural circuitry. He was the awardee of Stanford University’s Walter J. Gores Award for Excellence in Teaching, and two-time recipient of the Stanford School of Medicine’s Excellence in Teaching Award. He currently teaches courses at Williams in both Topics in Neuroscience as well as Neural Systems and Circuits.
Flavio Fröhlich, PhD is an Assistant Professor in Psychiatry, Cell Biology and Physiology, Biomedical Engineering, and Neurology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Fröhlich is a leader in the emerging field of Network Neuroscience and has received interdisciplinary training (electrical engineering, computational neuroscience, neurophysiology) at world-leading institutions (ETH Zurich, Salk Institute, UCSD, Yale). His laboratory conducts basic and translational research in the field of network neuroscience. Dr. Fröhlich has received numerous awards, including the prestigious NIMH BRAINS award for studying cortical network dynamics. He teaches a highly successful course Network Neuroscience at UNC that is attended by undergraduate and graduate students, medical residents, postdoctoral researchers, and neuroscience faculty.
