Monday Lecture Series
Amy Shyer, Ph.D., assistant professor and head, Laboratory of Morphogenesis, The Rockefeller University
Speaker bio(s)

Amy E. Shyer earned her B.S. in Psychobiology from University of California, Los Angeles where she began her research career studying synaptic transmission in Drosophila. For her Ph.D. at Harvard, she bridged experimental developmental biology with biophysics through work with developmental geneticist Cliff Tabin and applied mathematician L. Mahadevan. As a Miller Research Fellow at University of California, Berkeley she worked with the labs of Richard Harland and Sanjay Kumar, intersecting embryology with bioengineering tools to expose novel relationships between genomic regulation and morphogenesis. In 2018, she joined The Rockefeller University as an assistant professor and head of the Laboratory of Morphogenesis. In addition to being named a Searle Scholar, Shyer has received a Burroughs Wellcome Career Award at the Scientific Interface and an NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, among other honors.
