Stephen Matthew Eacker, Ph.D.
Instructor of Neurology
Dr Eacker is the principal investigator of a small laboratory focused on using the ribosome as a platform for understanding neurobiology. His group uses the translating ribosome affinity purification (TRAP) method to study translation control and neuronal connectivity in the context of cognition and Parkinson's disease. The topics Dr. Eacker's group studies include developing cell-type specific ribosome profiling methods to understand translational mechanisms underlying synaptic plasticity and memory; using gene expression profiles to define cell types participating in Parkinson's disease related neural circuits and understanding the impact of translation control mechanisms on autism spectrum disorders and related intellectual disabilities in hES-based models.
