WVU medical faculty and students are at the leading edge of scientific studies of the biological processes of life and at the forefront of efforts to bring health advances to residents of West Virginia's cities and rural areas. The School of Medicine serves students who want to study medicine, physical and occupational therapy, laboratory science, exercise physiology, research and graduate education and more.
At the West Virginia University School of Medicine, we educate health professionals, provide thousands of people with medical care, and conduct lifesaving research. Our students work side-by-side with doctors and scientists in the University's modern hospitals, clinics and laboratories.
As one medical school with three campuses, our students also have a chance to learn from professionals that practice at medical offices, clinics and hospitals across the state.

Neuroscience Seminar - Dr. Tzumin Lee, Howard Hughes Medical Institute - Janelia Farm
Neuro Seminar – Dr. Tzumin Lee Title: “Lineage- and age- dependent neural stem-cell fate” To create a complex brain, a diverse array of neurons needs to be specified. This is accomplished by neural stem cells that are both heterogeneous and that have age-dependent developmental potentials. Drosophila neural stem cells, called neuroblasts, are individually programmed to make a distinct yet stereotyped series of neuronal types, termed a lineage. We reconstruct the development of the entire Drosophila central brain by single-cell lineage analysis, and further elucidate the molecular genetic mechanisms that govern the specification of numerous related neuron types by lineage-specific, age-dependent neural stem cell fates. Speaker: Tzumin Lee, MD, PhD Janelia Group Leader, Development Biology and Neuroscience Howard Hughes Medical Institute- Janelia Farm Host: Dr. George Spirou When: Wednesday, September 2nd at 12:30pm Where: 301 BMRC These seminars are presented by the Department of Neurobiology & Anatomy, and the WVU Centers for Neuroscience.
