Matthew DeGennaro is a neurogeneticist with 20 years of experience in biomedical research. Throughout his scientific career, he has used molecular genetics to address biological questions. His graduate training at NYU Medical Center was with Ruth Lehmann, one of the founders of developmental genetics, who has made fundamental contributions to the fields of germ cell and RNA biology. DeGennaro's postdoctoral training at Rockefeller University was with Leslie Vosshall, a leader in the area of olfaction who initially identified insect olfactory receptors and determined their unique mechanism of action.
