Professor Biological Sciences, University of California San Diego

Prof. Eduardo R. Macagno is a neuroscientist at UC San Diego, where he
was recruited as the Founding Dean of the Division of Biological Sciences in
2001. His laboratory investigates how neurons innervate their correct targets in
the developing nervous system. Another current research project, at the
interface of Architecture and Neuroscience, employs Virtual Reality environments
to study the interaction of normal and neurologically impaired subjects with the
built environment. Macagno was President of the Academy of Neuroscience for
Architecture in 2010-12. Macagno teaches courses on “Dementia Science and
Society,” “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Biomedical Sciences” at UCSD
and on “Neuroscience for Architecture” with Gil Cooke at the New School for
Architecture and Design. Macagno is the Editor-in-Chief of Developmental
Neurobiology.
