Graeme Davis, Ph.D.
Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, University of California, San FranciscoWebsite
Graeme Davis is the Morris Hertzstein Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco and has been co-director for the Neurobiology Course at the Marine Biology Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, for the last several years.
The Davis laboratory has pioneered the rapidly growing field of homeostatic plasticity. Using cellular, molecular and systems biology approaches in fly and mouse models, the Davis laboratory aims to understand how homeostatic mechanisms allow plasticity changes to be integrated within the stable, reproducible and predictable baseline neural functioning of the brain and how such mechanisms fail in disease states such as autism and neurodegenerative disorders.
