Keynote Speaker

Expertise: Parallel to these interests is exploring how abnormalities in synaptic plasticity underlie psychological disorders with strong cognitive and affective components such as schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression.


Dr. Hearing is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at Marquette University. He completed his postdoctoral training in the laboratories of Dr. Mark Thomas and Dr. Kevin Wickman at the University of Minnesota. He obtained his Ph.D. at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2010 and his B.S. at Marquette University in 2003 working in the laboratories of Dr. Jacqueline McGinty and Dr. David Baker.

Dr. Hearing’s primary research investigates how modifications of cellular dynamics and synaptic strength can control behavior in normal and diseased states. A major emphasis of Dr. Hearing’s research is understanding how neural plasticity induced by chronic exposure to drugs of abuse leads to the development of addiction, with an additional focus on exploring methods to counteract these modifications at the cellular and circuit level to reverse pathologies which drive relapse.
