Daniel Alfonso Colón-Ramos, PhD

Associate Professor of Cell Biology and Neuroscience

Associate Professor of Neuroscience

Research Interests

Behavior; Brain; Cell Biology; Neurons

Daniel Colón-Ramos was born and raised in Puerto Rico. He completed his B.A. at Harvard University, his PhD in the lab of Dr. Sally Kornbluth at Duke University and was a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Kang Shen at Stanford University. The Colón-Ramos lab is interested in how synapses are precisely assembled to build the neuronal architecture that underlies behavior. To address this, they developed tools in the thermotaxis circuit of C. elegans. Their system enables unbiased genetic...
