Srinivasa Subramaniam

Srinivasa Subramaniam Ph.D.

Associate Professor
Phone: (561) 228-2104

Dr. Srini Subramaniam is an Associate Professor (Tenure Track.) He obtained his PhD in 2004 from the University of Heidelberg, Germany, where he worked on the molecular signaling that triggers neuronal death. At Johns Hopkins University for his postdoctoral research, he addressed the mechanisms for tissue-specific dysfunctions, focusing Huntington’s and Parkinson’s disease. Both experiences continue to inform his work at The Scripps Research Institute. His hobbies involve running, boxing and sketching.

Seth Tomchik

Seth Tomchik Ph.D.

Associate Professor
Phone: (561) 228-3496

Dr. Tomchik received his bachelor’s degree in psychology and Ph.D. in biology from the University of Miami. His postdoctoral research at the Baylor College of Medicine and The Scripps Research Institute focused on the neuroscience of learning and memory. His current research focuses on how learning and neuronal plasticity alter the flow of information in the brain, and how these normal processes are disrupted in disease states.
