Description

This lecture has been postponed. Watch this space for the new lecture date once it has been rescheduled.

Damien Fair is Redleaf Endowed Director, Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain (MIDB) and Professor, Department of Pediatrics and Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota. After receiving his PhD in Neuroscience from Washington University in Saint Louis, Dr. Fair served as a postdoctoral scholar and then an associate professor of behavioral neuroscience and psychiatry at Oregon Health and Science University. In 2020 he moved to the University of Minnesota. Dr. Fair's research focuses on mechanisms and principles that underlie the developing brain. The majority of this work uses functional MRI and resting state functional connectivity MRI to assess typical and atypical populations. A second focus has become testing the feasibility of using various functional and structural MRI techniques in translational studies of developmental neuropsychiatric disorders. Dr. Fair is exploring ways to better characterize individual patients with these psychopathologies to help guide future diagnostic, therapeutic and genetic studies. In 2020, Dr. Fair was selected for the MacArthur Fellows Program. In 2013, he received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.
