Chris Doe is an expert in neural stem cells, the generation of neurons, and how neural circuits are formed in model organisms such as fruit flies and mice. At the University of Oregon, he is a professor of biology and the co-director of the Institute of Neuroscience. Chris has studied how neural stem cells continue to divide without forming tumors, how stem cells change over time to produce different types of neurons, and how the very first neural circuits form and function to generate movement.
