Dr. Rafael Yuste
Ph.D., Rockefeller University. Rafael Yuste is Professor of Biological Sciences and Neuroscience at Columbia University. He was born and educated in Madrid, where he obtained his MD at the Universidad Autnoma in the Fundacin Jimenez Diaz Hospital. In 1996 he joined the Department of Biological Sciences at Columbia University. In 2005 he became HHMI Investigator and co-director of the Kavli Institute for Brain Circuits at Columbia. Since 1997 he is visiting researcher in Javier DeFelipes laboratory at the Cajal Institute in Madrid. Yuste has obtained many awards for his work, including New York City Mayor's and the Society for Neuroscience's Young Investigator Awards.}

Rafael Yuste is Professor of Biological Sciences and Neuroscience at Columbia University.
He was born in Madrid, where he obtained his M.D. at the Universidad Autónoma. After a brief period in Sydney Brenner's laboratory in Cambridge, UK, he performed Ph.D. studies with Larry Katz in Torsten Wiesel's laboratory at Rockefeller University and was a postdoctoral student of David Tank at Bell Labs. In 1996 he joined the Department of Biological Sciences at Columbia University, where he is Full Professor. In 2005 he became HHMI Investigator and co-director of the Kavli Institute for Brain Circuits and in 2014 Director of the Neurotechnology Center at Columbia. Yuste is interested in the structure and function of cortical circuits, the biophysical properties of dendritic spines and the pathophysiology of cortical diseases such as epilepsy and schizophrenia. To study these questions, Yuste has pioneered the development of imaging techniques, such as calcium imaging of neuronal circuits, two-photon imaging of spines and circuits, photostimulation using inorganic caged compounds, two-photon optogenetics and holographic microscopy. Yuste has obtained many awards, including New York City Mayor's, the Society for Neuroscience's Young Investigator and the NIH Director Pioneer Awards. Finally, he led the group of researchers who proposed the Brain Activity Map Project, recently sponsored by the White House's BRAIN initiative. \r\n","biography_thumbnailed":" Rafael Yuste is Professor of Biological Sciences and Neuroscience at Columbia University.

Rafael Yuste is a professor of biological science and neuroscience at Columbia University, co-director of the Kavli Institute for Brain Science and director of the NeuroTechnology Center, also at Columbia. Yuste is interested in the structure and function of cortical circuits, the biology of dendritic spines, small protrusions on the branches of neurons, and the pathophysiology of epilepsy. To study these questions, Yuste has pioneered the application of imaging techniques.
