Symposium honoring Azad Bonni

January 16, 2024
8:30 am - 5:15 pm

Join the Department of Neuroscience in celebrating the contributions of our former Chair, Dr. Azad Bonni.

Dr. Azad Bonni, currently serving as Senior Vice President at Roche where he is Global Head of Neuroscience & Rare Diseases at Pharma Research and Early Development (pRED), was Chair of the Department from 2012-2019. During that time, he oversaw tremendous growth and led the renaming of the Department from Anatomy and Neurobiology to Neuroscience. His laboratory studies the mechanisms governing neuronal connectivity during brain development and plasticity, providing fundamental insights into both healthy brain function and dysfunction in disease.

On Tuesday, January 16, 2024, we will acknowledge the contributions of Dr. Bonni and his lab with a full day of presentations by Department members past and present as well as close colleagues from other institutions. Food and beverages will be provided.

We anticipate the Symposium will be held at the new Neuroscience Research Building at the School of Medicine. Stay tuned for details.
