Zane Zeier, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Pshychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine. Dr. Zeier earned his Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Psychology at Montana State University and his doctorate at the University of Florida. Dr. Zeier was recruited to the University of Miami from the Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter Florida where he was a postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Zeier’s research efforts concern neurological diseases caused by repeat expansion mutations including Fragile X syndrome and C90rf72 related Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Using patient cells obtained through collaborations with his clinical colleagues, Dr. Zeier’s group creates induced pluripotent stem cell derived neurons. With these highly relevant cell models, Dr. Zeier studies the underlying basis of neurological disease which may be exploited for therapeutic development.
