Lisa Giocomo is an associate professor in the Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Giocomo received her Ph.D. in neuroscience from Boston University, advised by Dr. Michael Hasselmo. She then completed her postdoctoral training with Drs. Edvard and May-Britt Moser at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience. In 2013 Dr. Giocomo joined the faculty at Stanford University as an assistant professor and was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2019.
Dr. Giocomo's research integrates electrophysiology, behavior, gene manipulations, imaging and computational modeling to study how single-cell biophysics and network dynamics interact to mediate spatial memory and navigation. Her research has been supported by awards from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Klingenstein-Simons Foundation, Office of Naval Research, James S McDonnell Foundation, The Vallee Foundation and she was the 2018 recipient of the Society for Neuroscience Young Investigator Award.
