Lisa Giocomo is an associate professor of neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Giocomo received her Ph.D. in neuroscience from Boston University, advised by Michael Hasselmo. She completed her postdoctoral training with Edvard Moser and May-Britt Moser at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience. In 2013 she joined the faculty at Stanford as an assistant professor, and she was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2019.
Giocomo’s research integrates electrophysiology, behavior, gene manipulations, imaging and computational modeling to study how single-cell biophysics and network dynamics interact to mediate spatial memory and navigation. Her research has been supported by awards from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Klingenstein-Simons Fellowship, the Office of Naval Research, the James S. McDonnell Foundation and the Vallee Foundation. She was the 2012 recipient of the Peter and Patricia Gruber International Research Award and the 2018 recipient of the Society for Neuroscience Young Investigator Award.
