Seth Blackshaw

Professor of neuroscience, neurology and ophthalmology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

Dr. Seth Blackshaw is a professor of neuroscience, neurology and ophthalmology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is also an investigator in both the High Throughput Biology Center and the Institute for Cell Engineering at Johns Hopkins.

Harvard University Medical School, Boston, MA, 2004, Genetics; Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, 1999, Neuroscience.

His work examines the molecular basis of neuronal and glial cell fate specification and survival.  His research focuses on characterizing the network of genes that control specification of different cell types within the retina and hypothalamus, two structures that arise from the embryonic forebrain.  The ultimate goal is to use insights gained from learning how individual cell types are specified to understand how these cells contribute to the regulation of behavior, and how they can be replaced in neurodegenerative disease.
