Kang Shen is a professor of neuronal cell biology in the department of biology at Stanford University. He is also an investigator in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Kang’s research focuses on the dendrite morphogenesis, neuronal polarization and synapse formation. He earned his Bachelor of Medicine degree from Tongji Medical University from China, his Ph. D. degree from Duke University and completed postdoctoral training from the University of California San Francisco.
Ellen A. Lumpkin is an associate professor of physiology & cellular biophysics and of somatosensory biology (in dermatology) at Columbia University. She is also Co-Director of the Thompson Family Foundation Initiative in Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy & Sensory Neuroscience. She previously was a Sandler Fellow in the department of physiology at UC San Francisco and an assistant professor of neuroscience, physiology & molecular biophysics, and molecular & human genetics at Baylor College of Medicine. Lumpkin’s research focuses on genes, cells and neural signals that give rise to skin sensations such as touch, pain and itch. Dr. Lumpkin earned her BS in Animal Science from Texas Tech University and performed her PhD training at UT Southwestern Medical Center and The Rockefeller University. She completed her postdoctoral training at the University of Washington.
