Erika Matunis, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Cell Biology

Erika Matunis, Ph.D.

Erika Matunis is currently associate professor in the department of cell biology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Dr. Matunis’ research focuses on how stem cells renew and differentiate. She uses the fruit fly testis as a model system, studying the molecular signals that control whether germ line stem cells form more stem cells or become sperm. Her team recently discovered that cells transitioning into sperm can be redirected back in to stem cells.

Dr. Matunis received her doctorate at Northwestern University in Cell Biology.
