Education and Experience

Darrell J Killian - CVDarrell_J_Killian_files/

I am a molecular, cellular, and developmental biologist. I am interested in how genes are turned on and off to control the development of a multicellular organism. My model organism of choice is C. elegans, a soil nematode well suited for genetic investigation.

Recently, I have been working on a project that aims to determine how neuron morphology and function are regulated at the molecular level. To that end, my lab, in collaboration with others, has identified several RNA-binding proteins that govern neuron morphology in C. elegans, and we are now aiming to identify the specific mRNAs and the post-transcriptional mechanisms that they regulate within the neuron.
