About Cori Bargmann

Cori Bargmann studies the relationships between genes, circuits, and behaviors in the genetically tractable nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans. She received a BS in biochemistry from the University of Georgia and a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she studied the neu/HER2 oncogene with Robert A. Weinberg.

Her work on the neurobiology and genetics of behavior began during a postdoctoral fellowship with H. Robert Horvitz at MIT, and continued when she was a faculty member at the University of California, San Francisco for 13 years, starting in 1991. In 2004, Bargmann joined Rockefeller University as the Torsten N. Wiesel Professor and Associate Director of the Shelby White and Leon Levy Center for Mind, Brain and Behavior. In addition, she was an HHMI Investigator from 1995-2016 and in 2013-2014, she co-chaired the NIH working group to the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director for President Obama’s Brain Initiative. In 2016, she was selected by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative as its first President of Science.

She has received numerous plaudits for her work, including the Kemali International Prize for Basic and Clinical Neuroscience (2004), Kavli Prize in Neuroscience (2012), Benjamin Franklin Medal in Life Sciences (2014), and Edward M. Scolnick Prize in Neuroscience (2016). She is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Medicine, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, American Philosophical Society, and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
