In 2023, Jordan became a faculty member and started his own lab in Neurology at Harvard Medical School and the Rosamund Stone Zander Translational Neuroscience Center and F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Center at Boston Children’s Hospital. His lab aims to understand how basic mechanisms that support healthy brain functions become hijacked in epilepsy to drive pathophysiology. His lab’s most recent focus is unravelling how local circuit and large-scale network mechanisms, which normally control memory processes, become substrates for hypersynchronous, pathological activity in epilepsy. To translate their findings, his group develops non-invasive ultrasound approaches to re-tune neural circuits with high spatial and cell type-specific precision.

This annual award is from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NINDS established this award to emphasize mentorship and encourage faculty to make mentorship a vital component of their career. An incredible achievement and honor!

Last week, Stanford Neurosurgery held its first annual Neurosurgery Department Awards. Awards were given to both residents and med students who have shown exemplary work and research in their areas of interest. Ryan Jamiolkowski, who is performing research in our lab, was one of the awardees. Congratulations!

Florian completed his PhD in Neuroscience with Dr. Jean Christophe Poncer at Sorbonne University (Paris). During his PhD, he explored the mechanisms regulating the expression and function of the K+/Cl- transporter type 2 (KCC2) in the brain and investigated the therapeutic potential of targeting this transporter in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). He is excited going the lab and will focus more specifically on the mechanisms underlying pathological ensemble activities in the epileptic brain.

In 2023, Dr. Barna Dudok moved to Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, where he started his new job as McNair Scholar and Assistant Professor at the Department of Neurology. His research is focused on better understanding how GABAergic inhibitory interneurons shape circuit dynamics in healthy brains and in epilepsy. His goal is to identify optimal targets for neuromodulatory intervention and develop cell type-specific strategies for inhibiting epilepsy.
