Graeme Davis

Deputy Director, Kavli Institute for Fundamental Neuroscience

Graeme Davis is the Morris Hertzstein Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco.

Grae and his lab have pioneered the rapidly growing field of homeostatic plasticity. Using powerful forward genetics screens they have discovered cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible for the homeostatic stabilization of synaptic transmission. Recently, they have discovered some of the first mechanisms responsible for the homeostatic control of neuronal firing rate. Grae has served as the Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics. For seven years, Grae also co-directed the Neurobiology Course at the MBL in Woods Hole MA, an 8-week intensive immersion experience in cutting edge cellular and molecular neuroscience.
