Emma M. Myers joined the Quantitative Neuroscience Lab as a PhD student in Computational Neuroscience, and is now a postdoctoral associate. Her research is focused on gene expression in the brain using high-throughput datasets, and particularly the identification of transcriptomic signatures shared by homologous brain structures in the human and mouse. She also studies the expression profiles of genes implicated in speech and language disorders in the human brain.
Before coming to Boston University, Emma earned her BA in Cognitive Science from Vassar College. She worked as a laboratory technician in Robert Desimone’s lab (first at the NIH, then at MIT) conducting and analyzing experiments in electrophysiology in macaque visual cortex. Having experienced “wet brain” work and developed skills in writing code for analysis, Emma came to BU to pursue research in neuroscience using computational and data analytic approaches. She is interested in using transcriptomic information to clarify disease etiology, and to inform mouse models of human neuropathologies.
