Bryan Ballif

Assistant Professor of Biology

Bryan Ballif, Assistant Professor of Biology, studies molecular mechanisms of cell signaling with an emphasis on signal transduction pathways regulating mammalian brain development.

He earned his doctoral degree in 2001 from Harvard University where he studied the 
molecular mechanisms of cell survival. He then studied for two years at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center where he pursued interests in signaling mechanisms of the developing brain.

Just prior to his appointment to the Department of Biology, Dr. Ballif trained for three years at Harvard Medical School in mass spectrometry-based proteomics where he began developing and applying these tools to his  signaling interests. Along with biochemical and cell biological approaches, mass spectrometry-based proteomics remains an integral part of his research.

Dr. Ballif teaches introductory biology and molecular signaling mechanisms in developmental neurobiology.
