Welcome to Professor Mark Cembrowski

Welcome to Professor Mark S. Cembrowski as a new IAM-affiliated professor. Mark is a professor in the UBC Faculty of Medicine.

Mark S. Cembrowski received his undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of British Columbia (2007), where he researched complex oscillatory behaviour of nonlinear partial differential equations. He later received his MS (2008) and PhD (2011) in Applied Mathematics from Northwestern University, combining computational modeling and patch-clamp electrophysiology to study retinal processing. As a postdoc at the Janelia Research Campus of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Mark’s research used computational modeling, big data analysis, transcriptomics, electrophysiology, viral circuit mapping, and animal behaviour to study the role of cell types in memory.

Mark is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cellular and Physiological Sciences at UBC, with additional affiliations in the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health, and the School for Biomedical Engineering. His laboratory uses computational and experimental neuroscience to understand how the brain forms, stores, and retrieves different types of memory.

Read some of Mark’s recent papers in the journals Cell, Neuron, and Cell Reports. Be sure to read his website, which has so much more.

Welcome to the IAM, Mark!
