Talia Lerner, PhD
Assistant Professor of Physiology

We are thrilled to be welcoming Dr. Talia Lerner to speak at Lurie Children’s Hospital! She received her B.S. in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University and her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from The University of California, San Francisco. She then conducted postdoctoral research at Stanford University. Dr. Lerner is currently an Assistant Professor at Northwestern University, where she is researching how dopamine circuits regulate reward learning and habit formation, and how individual differences in dopamine circuit architecture contribute to the risk for neuropsychiatric disorders.

The Neuroscience Lecture Series is a monthly conference started by Child Neurology fellows at Lurie Children’s Hospital that is now in its 4th year of operation. The goal of the talk series is to bring together researchers from the Northwestern neuroscience community and neurologists, pediatric neurologists, and other interested clinical providers for a lecture and discussion regarding recent advances in basic and translational neuroscience that are relevant to the understanding of neurologic disease and emerging therapies. We are offering CME credit for this talk.
