Professor Catherine Dulac will present a Harvey Lecture on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at Rockefeller University in New York City. Her lecture, entitled “Molecular and Neural Sensing of Social Cues,” will describe her lab’s recent advances in uncovering the identity of sensory neurons detecting social cues, and of command circuits associated with specific social responses in males and females. Dr. Dulac is the Higgins Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, and former chair of MCB.
The Harvey Society, founded in 1905, sponsors a series of seven public lectures annually. Professor Dulac’s lecture is the third in the 2013-2014 series.
According to the Harvey Society’s website, the lectures are attended by hundreds of scientists from New York City and environs. “The Harvey lecture series is one of the most distinguished in the country and the annual books of the lectures are well known throughout the world.
