Leslie Tolbert, Ph.D. (left), of the University of Arizona will be the keynote speaker at OMV-SfN’s 2012 Neuroscience Day on Friday, May 18, at Miami University. Dr. Tolbert is Regents Professor and Professor of Neuroscience and Cell Biology & Anatomy at Arizona, where she also is vice president for research, graduate studies, and economic development.

Dr. Tolbert writes: “Research in my laboratory focuses on the development and functional organization of the olfactory system, studied in convenient model organisms, the moth Manduca sexta and, very recently, the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster. Several different lines of investigation have led us to focus much of our attention on roles for glial cells in development and in mature function.”  Read more.
