Dr Robert Munn
Human Biology Building
After his PhD, Dr. Munn undertook a postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Assoc. Prof. Lisa Giocomo in the department of Neurobiology at Stanford University in California. Here he worked on projects probing the function of Grid Cells in entorhinal cortex, publishing the results of his work in Nature Neuroscience. In 2020 he took up the position of Lecturer (below the bar) in the department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at NUI Galway.
