Tev joins the Sternson lab as part of a collaborative project with Anirvan Ghosh (UCSD). This Visiting Scientist project is aimed at developing tools to selectively perturb circuit connections. With the production of refined and serviceable molecular tools, he hopes to narrow the gap between synaptic function and basic physiological processes. Tev received his PhD from McGill University with Charles Bourque where he studied the electrophysiological properties of neural circuits regulating fluid homeostasis. Prior to that, he completed an MSc at the University of Alberta in the lab of Teresa Krukoff, studying the autonomic circuitry underlying the regulation of blood pressure.
