Dyslexia Research Laboratory

Human EctopiaWelcome to the home page of the Dyslexia Research Laboratory at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Established in October 24, 1982, the Dyslexia Research Laboratory's interests have centered on the biological substrates of developmental dyslexia. The laboratory was founded by Albert M. Galaburda, M.D., Emily Fisher Landau Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and Chief of the Division of Behavioral Neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Glenn D. Rosen, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Neurology (Neuroscience) at Harvard Medical School serves as the Director of laboratory. The laboratory has active collaborations with R. Holly Fitch, Ph.D. and Joseph J. LoTurco, Ph.D., whose projects and CVs can be found by following the links at the top of the page.Misoriented transfected neurons

NEW: Research Assistant Position Available

We are looking to hire a research assistants for our laboratory starting June 2013. We are investigating animal models of the neuronal migration anomalies associated with developmental dyslexia. We use in utero electroporation to perform RNAi knockdown of candidate dyslexia susceptibility genes. which dramatically disrupts the migration of neurons to the cerebral cortex. Our specific interests lie in determining the anatomic, connectional, and functional consequences of these migrational disturbances

We are looking for highly motivated, energetic people with at least a bachelor's degree. Experience in a laboratory setting is a plus, but is not necessary. Interested parties should email apply online here, and send a CV to . AA/EO.
