David is the Director of our core lab, the CISAB Mechanisms of Behavior Laboratory. He has over a decade of experience in the study and application of molecular techniques. His background includes applying genetic techniques such as PCR and RNA-Seq to organisms that are non-traditional genetic models.
Additionally, David has significant experience teaching in a laboratory setting and comes from a family that has produced several educators. This allows David to thrive when teaching wet-lab techniques to researchers. It also enables him to include the Mechanisms of Behavior Lab as in integral part of the CTRD graduate course: Techniques in Reproductive Diversity.
This research background coupled with his experience teaching and managing research labs enables David to succeed in directing the Mechanisms of Behavior Lab.
