Allan Jones joined the Allen Institute in 2003 to help start up the organization as one of its first employees. Bringing extensive expertise in project leadership and high-throughput genomics operations from prior management positions at Merck and Co., Rosetta Inpharmatics and Avitech Diagnostics, Allan was instrumental in recruiting an integrated interdisciplinary team, building the Institute's scientific operations from the ground up and successfully driving the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas to completion in 2006. He provided strategic leadership and vision through the expansion of the Institute's portfolio of large-scale, high-impact initiatives from the mouse brain atlas through to work on the human brain. Allan has broad scientific experience in genetics, molecular biology and development. He holds a B.S. degree in biology from Duke University and a Ph.D. in genetics and developmental biology from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

On January 18, 2013, Caltech hosted TEDxCaltech: The Brain, a forward-looking celebration of humankind's quest to understand the brain, by exploring the past, present and future of neuroscience. Visit TEDxCaltech.com for more details.
