Maria J Garcia is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics. She received a B.S. degree in Biology from Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (Spain) in 1994. In 1999, she received a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at CBM Severo Ochoa (Madrid. Spain) for her studies on the patterning of the sensory system of the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster. She then joined Dr. Kathryn V. Anderson at Sloan-Kettering Institute (New York) as a postdoctoral fellow, where she worked on the identification and characterization of mouse ENU mutants affecting early embryogenesis.
BioMG1350 - Principles of Cell and Developmental Biology
BioMG1350 is an introductory biology course that instructs about the molecular mechanisms that underlie the organization, division, and growth of individual cells, as well as how cells differentiate and organize during embryonic development to form functional tissues in multicellular organisms.
