Michael Koelle

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.
