David Vacek - Bio-X Undergraduate Fellow

2019 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: undeclared
Mentor: Liqun Luo, Biology

The function of a neuron is determined both by its physiology and connectivity, but the transcriptional regulatory mechanisms that coordinate these two features are poorly understood. David will perform a genetic study using the Drosophila model to discover important transcription factors and then find their mechanism in coordinating receptor expression and wiring specificity.
