Marie Suver, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences
Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering

I am an Assistant Professor in Biological Sciences and the Vanderbilt Brain Institute. Work in the Suver lab aims to understand how nervous systems predict and learn about the world. We use a combination of tools in Drosophila including whole cell patch clamp recordings in behaving animals, genetics, quantitative behavior, machine learning, and calcium imaging to gain a mechanistic understanding of fundamental properties of neural circuit function. 


We are hiring - please reach out to me about joining our team as a student or postdoc! I am accepting rotation students from graduate programs at Vanderbilt including Biological Sciences, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program, and Neuroscience. Prospective graduate students can email me to discuss graduate programs of interest.
