Kay M. Tye, PhD
Professor at The Salk Institute for Biological Studies
2014 NYSCF – Robertson Neuroscience Investigator Alumna
PhD, University of California, San Francisco
Postdoctoral Training, Stanford University
Dr. Tye is the Wylie Vale Professor at The Salk Institute for Biological Studies, where her lab focuses on understanding how the brain processes the differences between positive and negative stimuli, and leveraging cutting-edge techniques to reprogram neural circuits to induce long lasting changes in behavior. She completed her postdoctoral training at Stanford University, and started her independent laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology before moving to Salk.
