EMILY PETRUS
Emily Petrus is a postdoctoral research fellow at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD. She obtained her PhD in Neuroscience in 2014 from Johns Hopkins University. Emily studies adaptations that the adult brain employs, via the corpus callosum, to recover after unilateral injury. By describing the specific synapses, neurons and circuits the brain uses to adapt after injury she hopes to develop more targeted therapies to enhance recovery. Emily is funded by a K99 Pathway to Independence award and will begin a tenure track assistant professor position at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences this fall.
FERNANDA TOVAR MOLL
Fernanda Tovar-Moll obtained her MD degree (1999), completed a Medical Residency program in Radiology (2000-2003), and obtained a Master’s Degree (2000-2002) and a PhD Degree (2004-2007) in Morphological Sciences from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil. From 2004 to 2007, she was a grantee of a “Postdoctoral Fellowship" award at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA. Fernanda is elected Affiliate Member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences and has mentored several PhD students and post-docs, conducting research projects in neuroplasticity and neuroimaging. In 2015, she was one of the co-founding members of the International Research Consortium for the Corpus Callosum and Cerebral Connectivity (IRC5), and she is currently a member of the Governance Board of Directors and has been working in collaborative groups with other international experts on normal and abnormal brain development connectivity. She was a professor at UFRJ from 2010 to 2020. At UFRJ, from 2014 to 2018 Dr. Tovar-Moll was also a member of the Board of Directors of the National Center for Structural Biology and Bioimaging (CENABIO). Currently, she holds a position as the CEO of the D’Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR), a private not-for-profit research institute in Brazil, which she co-founded in 2009. IDOR has been responsible for the development and implementation of research, education and innovation activities at Rede D‘Or Hospitals Network, the largest private hospitals network in Brazil (with more than 50 hospitals).
FRANCISCO ABOITIZ
Francisco Aboitiz majored in Biology at the University of Chile, and obtained a PhD degree in Neuroscience at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). He is presently the Director of the Interdisciplinary Center for Neuroscience at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, and full professor at the Medical School of the same University.

PAUL LOCKHART
Professor Lockhart is a molecular geneticist and Group Leader of Neurogenetic Research at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. His research has a focus on the genetic causes of conditions that affect the nervous system as well as research into genetic testing, ethics in clinical genetics and study of genetic syndromes. Most recently, his research activities have utilised advanced genomic technologies, such as next generation sequencing and induced pluripotent stem cell models, to understand the pathogenesis of neurogenetic conditions.
