Harvard scientist to lead Stanford's Bio-X program
Harvard neurobiologist Carla Shatz will move to Stanford this summer to lead the university's Bio-X program, a bioscience effort that promotes collaborations between wide-ranging fields of scientists, the San Jose Mercury News reported this week.
The Stanford Report, quoting a Harvard alumni publication, said that in 1976 Shatz became the first woman to receive a doctorate in neurobiology from Harvard, and in 2000, the first woman to chair Harvard's neurobiology department and the second woman in the history of Harvard Medical School to chair a basic science department.
