Eiman Azim, PhD -- Associate Professor, William Scandling Developmental Chair

Eiman Azim, PhD Associate Professor, William Scandling Developmental Chair

Eiman Azim is an Associate Professor and the William Scandling Developmental Chair in the Molecular Neurobiology Laboratory at The Salk Institute for Biological Studies. Eiman explores how the brain controls movement of the body, focusing on dexterous behaviors, such as grasping a cup of coffee or catching a ball. These kinds of movements are central to our daily experience, and unfortunately, they are particularly susceptible to injury and disease of the nervous system. His laboratory takes advantage of cutting-edge genetic and viral tools, techniques for recording the activity of the brain and spinal cord, detailed motor behavioral tests, and computational approaches to piece together the underpinnings of movements. This type of knowledge could clarify how the brain achieves such astounding coordination and pave the way for improved diagnosis and treatment when neural circuits are disrupted. Eiman earned a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in Philosophy of Science from Stanford and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Harvard before completing postdoctoral training at Columbia. Eiman is also an Assistant Adjunct Professor in Neurobiology at UC San Diego. He is a recent recipient of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, the NIH Pathway to Independence Award, the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, and was named a Searle Scholar, a Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences, a Kathryn W. Davis Aging Brain Scholar, and a McKnight Scholar.
