Prof. Eric Klann
Eric Klann is Professor and Director of the Center for Neural Science at New York University. Dr. Klann received his Ph.D. from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in 1989, did postdoctoral training at Baylor College of Medicine, and previously held faculty positions at the University of Pittsburgh and Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Klann’s research is focused on the molecular mechanisms of translational control and their role in activity-dependent changes in synaptic function and behavior, including cognition. He also studies how dysregulated translational control contributes to altered synaptic function and aberrant behaviors in developmental brain disorders and neurodegenerative disease. Dr. Klann has published over 180 original research articles, reviews, commentaries, and book chapters, and has delivered over 250 invited presentations at universities and conferences all over the world. He has served on numerous journal editorial boards, NIH study sections, international review panels, foundation advisory boards, and councils of scientific organizations. Dr. Klann is the recipient of a NARSAD Distinguished Investigator Award and the Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award from the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
