Acting Chief, Section on Neuronal Circuitry

Dr. Weisz received a B.S. degree in Neurobiology from Cornell University, a M.S. in Biotechnology from Johns Hopkins University, and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her graduate work involved studies of synaptic inputs and electrical properties of cochlear type II spiral ganglion afferent neurons in the laboratories of Dr. Paul Fuchs and Dr. Elisabeth Glowatzki. Post-doctoral work in the laboratory of Dr. Karl Kandler at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine investigated the development of circuits between brainstem neurons involved in sound localization. In 2015 Dr. Weisz moved to the NIDCD where she became Acting Chief of the Section on Neuronal Circuitry. Dr. Weisz’s laboratory investigates the synaptic transmission and electrical properties of descending neuronal circuitry in the auditory brainstem and cochlea.
