DAVID BOOTH, PH.D.

Booth pioneers the development of genetic tools in choanoflagellates to discover how these microeukaryotes regulate gene expression and cellular architecture to transition between different cell states in response to their environment. He aims to synthesize a molecular understanding of these cell-state transitions with evolutionary history to fathom the origins and evolution of cell identity and cell fate in choanoflagellates and their closest living relatives, the animals.
