Alex Schier, "Single-cell reconstruction of vertebrate development"

Department of Biology

Alex Schier is the Leo Erikson Life Sciences Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University.  Research in the Schier Lab addresses two questions: (i) vertebrate embryogenesis - how do signals, non-coding RNAs, and chromatin influence the fate and movement of cells, and (ii) behavior – how do neuropeptides and neural circuits regulate locomotion, sleep, and learning? They mainly use zebrafish as a model system, because genetic and imaging approaches can be combined to study complex behaviors and developmental processes in a vertebrate.
