报告人简介:Geert de Vries is a Professor and Director of the Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University (GSU). De Vries joined GSU in 2012, leaving a long-standing position at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where he directed the Center for Neuroendocrine Studies and an NIH-funded Training Program in Neuroendocrinology. He is Past President of the organization for the Study of Sex Differences as well as Past President of the Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology. He chaired Theme E, Homeostatic and Neuroendocrine Systems, for the Society for Neuroscience and organized the 9th World Congress of Neurohypophysial Hormones. He served on numerous NSF and NIH panels and recently served as a member of the Advisory Board of CIHR’s Institute of Gender and Health. Ever since discovering the sexually dimorphic nature of vasopressin innervation of the brain as a graduate student, De Vries has studied the development and function of sex differences in the brain. This culminated in proposing the overarching idea that such differences cause as well as prevent sex differences in physiology and behavior. He also demonstrated that differences in vasopressin innervation depend on gonadal hormones as well as on direct sex chromosomal effects. Finally, his lab has traced the origin of vasopressin innervation in the rodent brain.
