Nathan is a Neuroscience graduate student in the Miller Lab. He received his undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis while performing research in the laboratory of Dr. Ben-Shahar on the evolution of a microRNA family and its impact on fly behavior. He has continued his interest in microRNAs with the Miller Lab where he works on motor neuron-derived microRNAs and their cell type-specific influence on ALS pathobiology. Nathan is originally from Newton, MA, the namesake of the Fig Newton. In his spare time, he enjoys reading novels, listening to podcasts, and trying new brunch places in St. Louis.
