David Anderson
Seymour Benzer Professor, Division of Biology and Biological Engineering // California Institute of Technology in Pasadena
Director of the TianQiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience at Caltech
Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute


Dr. Anderson received his AB from Harvard College in 1978, did his PhD training with the late Günter Blobel, a Nobel Laureate at The Rockefeller University, and his postdoctoral work with Richard Axel, a Nobel Laureate at Columbia. He is an alumnus of the 1979 MBL Neurobiology Course. Dr. Anderson's research career has spanned multiple topics in neuroscience, from the study of neural crest stem cells that generate the developing peripheral nervous system, to the neural circuits that mediate innate emotional behaviors, such as fear and aggression.

He has published over 225 primary research articles and is the co-author with Caltech colleague Ralph Adolphs of The Neuroscience of Emotion: a New Synthesis (2018, Princeton University Press). Dr. Anderson has trained over 50 PhD students or postdoctoral fellows. He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2002), the US National Academy of Sciences (2007), and is a recipient of the 2017 Perl-UNC Neuroscience Prize and the 2018 Edward M. Scolnick Prize in Neuroscience from MIT.

Dr. Anderson played a key role as an adviser to the late Paul Allen in the founding of the Allen Institute for Brain Sciences and the creation of the Allen Brain Atlas, and continues to serve as an adviser to that Institute. He has also served on two working groups for the NIH's BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovation in Neurotechnology) Initiative.

Dr. Anderson has engaged in the public communication of science through several channels. He published an OpEd in the New York Times, The Alchemy of Stem Cell Research (July 15, 2001), has delivered a TEDx talk ("Your Brain is More than a Bag of Chemicals," 2013) which has received almost 1.5 million views, has appeared on NPRs TED Radio Hour to discuss the talk, the National Edition of NPRs All Things Considered with Jon Hamilton (2019), and two episodes of Charlie Rose's Brain Series. His work on aggression in fruit flies has been profiled in the NY Times ("To study aggression, a fight club for flies," Feb. 3rd 2014).

      Russian biologist, an expert in molecular biology and genetics, immunology and biotechnology. One of the top 100 most cited Russian scientists.

      He organized educational programs in Moscow on oncoimmunology and molecular immunology.
      Made a major contribution to the development of domestic molecular biology, immunology and biomedicine. He and his school carried out pioneering work on the biology of cytokines, created unique animal models of human diseases, investigated the mechanisms of pathogenesis of a number of diseases at the molecular level, developed new approaches to biotherapy, including the creation of prototypes for new drugs.

      In the 80 years, SA Nedospasov and colleagues were the first to molecularly clone the genes of the tumor necrosis factor family of cytokines, which are the mediators of immune processes. Based on these molecular clones, cytokine production strains have been created in our country, including TNF and human lymphotoxin, and then a panel of monoclonal antibodies that neutralize their activity. SA Nedospasov and colleagues created a unique panel of mouse lines with controlled deactivation of TNF, lymphotoxin and other mediators important for the development of the immune system. In these animals it became possible to model various human diseases - from autoimmune and infectious to oncological, to study the association of microbiota with inflammation, and also to practice biotherapy.

      Hollis Cline
      PhD, Hahn Professor and co-chair of the Department of Neuroscience at Scripps Research

      Her research has demonstrated the roles of a variety of activity-dependent mechanisms in controlling structural plasticity of neuronal dendrites and axons, synaptic maturation and topographic map formation. This body of work has helped to generate a comprehensive understanding of the role of experience in shaping brain development.

      Two key points to emerge from her research are that circuit formation in vivo is a dynamic process throughout development that is continuously guided by experience, and that basic mechanisms governing brain development, plasticity, information processing and organizational principles of brain circuits are highly conserved across vertebrates.

      Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany

      My scientific activities are centered on the analysis of molecular mechanisms involved in regulation of glial and neuronal functions under physiological and pathological conditions with a particular focus on the serotonin-mediated signaling.

      We have recently discovered novel signaling pathways by which 5-HT4 and 5-HT7 serotonin receptors modulate the activity of small GTPases of the Rho family, thus leading to the reorganization of neuronal architecture and synaptic plasticity.

      In addition, we elucidated the role of 5-HT7 receptor-mediated signaling in neurodegenerative disorders, including tauopathies. We have also uncovered a molecular mechanism by which post-translational modifications of the 5-HT1A regulate its functional properties and can be involved in depression.

      To analyze the dynamic interaction of molecules involved in morphogenesis in astrocytes and neurons, we have established novel analytic paradigm for quantitative measuring of the Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) at the single cell level in combination with electrophysiology.

      We have also developed a set of FRET-based biosensors to study the distribution and activation patterns of signaling processes (e.g. Ca2+, cAMP and small GTPases) with a high spatial and temporal resolution.
