Marc Hammarlund, PhD

Professor of Genetics and of Neuroscience; Director of Graduate Studies, Genetics



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 studies neuronal degeneration, regeneration, and cell fate. We aim to discover fundamental mechanisms of neuronal cell biology. Please visit our web site:
