Dmitry Velmeshev

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Arnold Kriegstein at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

I focus on applying single-cell genomics techniques to study the development of specific cell types of the human brain, as well as to understand how these cell types are affected in various diseases, especially autism.

Before starting my work at UCSF, I did my PhD at the University of Miami focusing on genomic analysis of autism. I did my B.S. and MS at Moscow State University in my native Russia, where I worked on animal models of epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease.
