Levi Gadye

Levi is a fourth-year Ph.D student in Neuroscience at UC Berkeley. A San Francisco native, Levi spent four years obtaining his bachelor's in Neuroscience at Brown University before retreating back to California for his doctorate. He now studies stem cells in the olfactory epithelium, the only sensory organ capable of regeneration in the adult. His favorite outreach activity is leading sheep (and sometimes human) brain demonstrations for everyone from elementary school students to prison inmates, and he has recently begun blogging and writing for the Berkeley Science Review. In addition to his enthusiasm for the minute (such as transcription factors and epigenetics), he hopes to one day make a dent in mental health care, prisons, and/or education. In his spare time he entertains his colleagues with classic rock covers as the bassist in a rock band of Berkeley neuroscientists, the Sustentaculars (named after a glial cell type in the olfactory system).
