The Giszter Lab - Modular Neuromechanics and Motor Primitives Lab Members

Simon Giszter, PhD

Simon Giszter received his BA in the Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, UK. He received his PhD in Biology at the University of Oregon under the mentorship of Dr. Graham Hoyle, and he then went on to postdoctoral fellowships at UCLA, in the Crump Institute for Biomedical Engineering, and at MIT, in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, under the mentorship of Institute Professor Dr. Emilio Bizzi. He was promoted to Research Scientist at MIT, before then joining Drexel College of Medicine (in 1994, while it was still in one of its former iterations, the Medical College of Pennsylvania and Hahnemann University). He is now a professor in the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy at Drexel University College of Medicine, with a joint appointment in the School of Biomedical Engineering and Health Systems, at Drexel.
