Danielle Spitzer Developmental Biologist and Educator
I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in the Dept. of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley, working in Iswar Hariharan's lab. I use genetics to investigate how cell adhesion molecules affect the growth and survival of epithelial cells in fruit flies.
I am passionate about undergraduate education and believe that evidence-based, student-centered pedagogy is the key to promoting learning, fostering a love of biology in my students, and reducing educational inequity and injustice.
