Dr. Kif L. holds a Ph.D. in molecular genetics from the University of Cambridge, where he investigated how the normal function of mammalian skin stem cells is regulated by various genes and molecular mechanisms. He has published many papers in the area of skin biology and won several awards, including, most recently a long-term fellowship from the European Molecular Biology Organization and a postdoctoral/principal investigator grant from the Larry L Hillblom Foundation. Dr. Kif L. specializes in human genetics and trained at the Institute of Human Genetics, University of Göttingen, Germany and the Wellcome Sanger Institute, Cambridge, UK. He is currently an EMBO and Hillblom Fellow, working at Stanford University on genetic mechanisms involved in synapse formation and function.
