Professor of Neuroscience, Graduate Program Director for the Neuroscience Graduate Program, Vice Chair of Neuroscience


Dr. Anne Hart obtained her Ph.D. in Neuroscience at UCLA with Dr. S.L. Zipursky working on cell fate specification in the Drosophila eye. She undertook her post-doctoral training in C. elegans genetics with Dr. Josh Kaplan in the Department of Molecular Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Hart joined the Center for Cancer Research at the Massachusetts General Hospital and the Harvard Medical School Department of Pathology as an assistant professor and taught numerous classes in genetics and neuroscience. She moved to the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University in the fall of 2009. She has served as faculty in neuroscience courses at the Marine Biological Laboratories and the Okinawa Institute of Sicence and Technology. Her research focuses on the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying neurological disease, sensory signaling, sleep, and adaptation to environmental stress.
