Samuel Andrew Hires, first studied Brain and Cognitive Sciences as an undergrad at MIT. In 2007, he received his Ph.D. in Neurosciences in the lab of Roger Tsien at UCSD where he developed genetically encoded indicators of glutamate and synaptic release. This was followed by a brief post-doc with Loren Looger at Janelia Farm where he developed the popular genetically-encoded calcium indicator G-CaMP3 with Lin Tian. He finished his post-doctoral training with Karel Svoboda studying cortical circuits governing tactile sensory processing in the mouse.
