Jeremy Linsley, PhD
Laboratory of Steve Finkbeiner
Linsley has a BA in biology from Whitman College, and received his PhD in cellular and molecular biology from the University of Michigan. His research interests are in neuroscience and behavior, as well as the cellular physiology underlying neural and skeletal muscle disorders. In his graduate research, Linsley discovered the gene Stac3 is a component of the excitation-contraction machinery in skeletal muscle and the mechanism by which mutations in that gene cause Native American Myopathy, a rare but devastating congenital disease.
In the Finkbeiner laboratory, Linsley uses time-lapse imaging of neurons in culture, within organotypic mouse brain slices, and within live zebrafish to uncover the mechanisms in neurodegeneration that lead to neuronal death.
