Lucas Pozzo-Miller, Ph.D.

1998- Neurobiology University of Alabama, Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, United States 
Synapses, BDNF, MeCP2, Rett Syndrome

Lucas Pozzo-Miller completed his undergraduate studies in Biology (MSc, 1986) and earned his graduate degree from the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina (PhD, 1989). He trained as postdoctoral fellow at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland OH, with Dennis Landis (1990-1992), and at the Roche Institute of Molecular Biology, Nutley NJ, with John Connor (1992-1995). He performed research at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole MA, with Rodolfo Llinás (1994 Grass Foundation Fellow, and 1995 Lakian Foundation Fellow). He was a Senior Staff Fellow at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda MD, in the laboratory of Tom Reese (1995-1998). He joined the faculty of the Department of Neurobiology at The University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1998, and is presently Professor of Neurobiology, and Associate Director of the UAB Comprehensive Neuroscience Center.
