Stanford University, PhD
Professor Koelle’s research interests include neurobiology, neurotransmission and reception, G and RGS proteins, serotonin, molecular genetics, and proteins and macromolecules. He currently studies the mechanism of signaling by neurotransmitters, using behavioral mutants of the nematode C. elegans in which neurotransmitter signaling is defective. This research has the potential to impact control of seizures and depression in humans. At Yale, he teaches Biochemistry and Biophysics.
