Peter Groblewski recently joined the Allen Institute for Brain Science where he is a Scientist
in the Neural Coding group. He is applying his extensive experience with rodent models of
learning and memory to the development of various virtual-reality foraging tasks in mice,
including those that will serve as the foundation for the institute’s Mindscope project. In
addition to his research, Peter manages the high-throughput behavior facilities at the
institute. In his seminar, he will describe his transition out of academia and discuss his
experiences balancing research and management at a non-profit neuroscience research
organization.
