    Marin, Oscar

    Professor of Neuroscience, head of the Department of Developmental Neurobiology and director of the Center of the Medical Research Council (MRC) for the Neurodevelopmental Disorders in the King’s College London. Oscar is interested in understanding the mechanisms that control the development of the cerebral cortex of mammals, and a large part of his work focuses on the cortical interneurons. Although his research aims at elucidating fundamental mechanisms of development and plasticity, much of his efforts are also dedicated to investigate the function of genes whose variation confers susceptibility to diseases of the neurodevelopmental such as autism and schizophrenia.
