Karl Kandler is Professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the University of Pittsburgh, with secondary appointments in the departments of Otolaryngology and Bioengineering. He was born in Germany, where he studied Biology at the University of Regensburg and the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, from which he graduated in 1993 with a PhD. As a Feodor Lynen Research Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung he then performed postdoctoral research with Lawrence C. Katz at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Duke University studying synaptic circuits and plasticity in the visual cortex and hippocampus. Since 1998, Dr. Kandler has been a faculty member in the School of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, investigating the development and plasticity of auditory circuits in the mammalian brain, for which he received a number of prestigious awards, including the Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering (2000). From 2007 to 2017, he established and directed the Auditory Research Group in the Department of Otolaryngology. Dr. Kandler is also a faculty member in the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition and an adjunct professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. (p. xii)
