Rachel Smith-Bolton writes:

"I received my undergraduate degree from Harvard University where I worked in Richard Losick's lab on asymmetric cell division in Bacillus subtilis. I then received my Ph.D. from Stanford University where I conducted my thesis research in Mike Simon's lab on Receptor Tyrosine Kinase signaling during Drosophila development. During my time as a postdoctoral fellow in the Hariharan lab I have developed a genetic method to induce tissue damage in developing Drosophila wings in order to identify the genes and mechanisms that regulate tissue regeneration."
