Marc did his doctoral work with Erik Jorgensen, studying genetics and synaptic transmission. In his postdoc with Mike Bastiani he pioneered the study of axon regeneration in C. elegans and discovered the DLK regeneration pathway.

The Hammarlund lab develops novel ways to study the cell biology of neurons in vivo. We study how neurons prevent degeneration, repair injury, and maintain circuit function.
