Prof. Ole Kiehn
University of Copenhagen.
"Linking brainstem locomotor command pathways to restoration of locomotor function in Pakinsonism"
Ole Kiehn is a Danish/Swedish neuroscientist, and holds a professor position at the University of Copenhagen (Department of Neuroscience) since 2017. His research investigates the molecular, cellular, and network diversification of motor circuitries in mammals. His work has identified spinal circuits in mammals that control the ability to produce and set the tempo and coordination of locomotor movements as well as the organization of brainstem command pathways that control the episodic and context-dependent expression of movement. Kiehn’s work has direct implications for understanding the mechanisms and developing treatments for motor disorders. Kiehn’s work has been recognized with the Schellenberg Prize, Torsten and Ragnar Soderberg’s Professorship, and two ERC advanced grants. He is elected member of EMBO, the Royal Swedish Academy of Science, The Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, Academia Europea and the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet.
The lecture will take place online via Zoom (contact diana [dot] jerman [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se for link).
