Seth DonoughePosition in Extavour Lab: Graduate Student
Current Position: Postdoc, University of Chicago
Seth was captivated by the complexity in biological systems when he was an undergraduate at Swarthmore College. While there, he studied dragonfly wing structure with Rachel Merz and anemone behavior with Liz Vallen.
After graduating, he worked in the lab of Steve DiNardo at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, where he was given the opportunity to shift my focus to Drosophila developmental genetics. There, his research centered on how planar polarity is established in a growing fly.
As a graduate student in the the OEB program, Seth was supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. In his doctoral work, Seth explored various aspects of early insect development, with the goal of uncovering a little bit more about how different groups have evolved.
