Julie A. Kauer, Ph.D.
Professor
Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences
Stanford University School of Medicine
Stanford, California

For over twenty-five years Julie Kauer has headed a cellular neurophysiology research lab working in the field of synaptic transmission and plasticity. The Kauer lab uses pharmacological tools, optogenetics, mouse genetics, and brain slice recordings to understand synaptic function. Dr. Kauer has served as Associate Editor for the Journal of Neuroscience, was a member of the APS Editorial Board of Physiology, and currently serves on the Editorial boards of the Journal of Neurophysiology and Physiological Reviews. She was the elected Chair of the Gordon Research Conference on Synaptic Transmission in 2006, and was an invited Special Lecturer at the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting in 2008. Julie Kauer served on the NIH study section, MNPS, and on the Board of Scientific Counselors for NINDS. She was elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2012 in recognition of her work on synaptic function. Most recently, Dr. Kauer has been elected to serve on the Council of the Society for Neuroscience. Recent focus areas of the lab include hippocampal synaptic plasticity, the effects of addictive drugs and stress in the midbrain reward circuitry, and spinal cord cellular physiology in the context of nociceptive processing. She worked at Brown University for many years where she was awarded the Sidney A. Fox and Dorthea Doctors Fox Professor of Ophthalmology, Visual Sciences and Neuroscience. In January, 2019 Dr. Kauer’s lab moved to Stanford University, where they will pursue collaborations with new colleagues working in the area of synaptic function and pain.
