Dr. Tatsuya Murakami is a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Nathaniel Heintz’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology at The Rockefeller University. His work explores the question of how psychotic symptoms in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders are represented in a cellular network. To address this question, he devised a novel imaging technique that enables spatial characterization of the transcriptome state of human brains in a disease state. Dr. Murakami obtained his M.Sc. in life science from Tsinghua University, and his Ph.D. in medical science from the University of Tokyo, where he conducted research in whole-mammalian brain single-cell-resolution imaging with Dr. Hiroki R. Ueda.
