Raymond Sanchez, SfN 2017 Blogger



ray sanchez

My name is Raymond Sanchez, and this year I’ll be one of the official meeting bloggers for the 2017 SfN meeting. I’m a PhD Candidate in Neuroscience at the University of Washington in the lab of Dr. Horacio de la Iglesia. My research focuses on sleep and circadian rhythm disturbances in Dravet syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy and autism-spectrum disorder, as well as how circadian rhythm disturbances like jet lag and shift work contribute to the etiology of mood disorders.

I’ll be focusing primarily on Themes F (Integrative Physiology and Behavior) and G (Motivation and Emotion), with a special emphasis on sleep and circadian rhythms, their relationship to neurological and psychiatric disorders, and innovative approaches to solving big data problems in neuroscience. See you in D.C.!
