Ralda Nehme, Ph.D.
Ralda Nehme is a group leader at the Stanley Center. Nehme and her group investigate the genetic, cellular, and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental and psychiatric diseases using human stem cell models. Nehme completed her Ph.D. in the lab of Barbara Conradt at Dartmouth College, where she studied neuronal development in C. elegans. She then pursued her postdoctoral studies in the lab of Kevin Eggan (Harvard University), where she became interested in modeling psychiatric disease, and developed efficient methods to generate neurons from human stem cells.
