Stephen M. Strittmatter earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard College, summa cum laude, in 1980. He completed M.D. and Ph.D. training at Johns Hopkins in 1986 with mentorship from Solomon H. Snyder, M.D. He then moved to Massachusetts General Hospital for a medical internship and an Adult Neurology residency. While at Massachusetts General Hospital, he worked as a Research Fellow with Mark Fishman, M.D., exploring the molecular basis of axonal guidance. After a year as Fellow, he served...
Associate Research Scientist in Neurology
Analytical, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Techniques and Equipment; Chemicals and Drugs
Erik graduated with honors from the University of California at Santa Cruz (1993), received a PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Washington (2001) and was Senior Scientist in the Central Nervous System Department of CuraGen, Inc. before entering the Center for Neurodegeneration and Neurorepair under the Department of Neurology at Yale (2005).
Neurodegenerative Diseases; Neurosciences
Dr. Fesharaki is currently a behavioral neurologist/neuropsychiatrist, as well as a basic neuroscience researcher focusing on Traumatic Brain Injury and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. He has a diverse training background, which include a mixture of clinical adult psychiatry, clinical behavioral neurology/neuropsychiatry and bench neuroscience skills. During his residency training, he was also able to pursue a PhD degree in neurobehavioral sciences focusing on co-morbid traumatic brain...
Neuroscience Graduate Student
Harrison is a Ph.D. student in the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program. He is interested in investigating the molecular mechanisms that contribute to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). Harrison aims to further elucidate the amyloid beta oligomer/ PrPc signaling pathway with the hope of revealing novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of AD.
Santiago is currently a Ph.D. student in the department of Genetics. He is interested in studying the molecular mechanisms that lead to Alzheimer's disease. His primary goal is to understand the relationship between beta-amyloid/PrP-C interaction and neurodegenerative pathology.
Levi M. Smith is a graduate student from the department of Cell Biology. He is interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of Alzheimer's disease as well as drug discovery. His current research investigates the roles of several cell-surface proteinsin the binding of soluble amyloid beta oligomers to cells. Levi graduated with a M.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences and a Doctor of Pharmacy from Butler University in 2013 and joined the Strittmatter lab in 2014.
