Juan Lerma


Juan Lerma initiated his career in 1979 at the "Ramón y Cajal" Hospital in Madrid, studying the neural circuits and cellular activities that process sensory-motor integration during Paradoxical Sleep (REM sleep). After obtaining his Ph.D degree in 1983, he established an independent laboratory in the same department where he contributed to the development of brain microdialysis until he moved (1987) to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in New York. In 1990, he returned to Madrid as Group Leader at the Cajal Institute (CSIC) where he continued to make key contributions in the field of glutamate receptors in neuronal physiopathology. In 2004, he moved with his group to the Instituto de Neurociencias de Alicante, where he was appointed Vicedirector in 2005 and Director in 2007. He is currently Chair of the Paneuropean Committee of the International Brain Research Organization, Secretary General-elect of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies and member of the board of the European Brain Council.
