Who is Ivan Izquierdo?

Dr. Ivan Antonio Izquierdo is a renowned Argentine Brazilian scientist and a pioneer in the study of the neurobiology of learning and memory. Born in 1937 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Izquierdo has graduated in Medicine and completed his Ph.D. in Pharmacology, both in the University of Buenos Aires. For nearly a decade, Izquierdo taught at National University of Cordoba, in Argentina, but, due to a number of reasons, both political and personal, he moved to Brazil in the beginning of the 1970s, and has lived in Porto Alegre since 1978. For more than 20 years, he has worked in the "Center of Memory" of the Biochemistry Department of the Health Basic Sciences Institute at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, where he has had an enormous influence on young scientists: he has trained 42 Ph.D. students, most of whom hold academic research positions in universities in Brazil and elsewhere.
