Dr. Weatherill is an Assistant Researcher conducting experiments in both the Fanselow lab and Martin lab. He received his Ph.D. in neuroscience from McGill University. He has extensive experience in a uniquely broad range of techniques, ranging from biochemistry to cell physiology to behavior. He has a particularly strong background in building DNA constructs, exogenous protein expression, live cell imaging, and electrophysiology. He has a passion for using the tools of molecular biology to get at intractable problems in neuroscience. This has led him to design several creative molecular systems, including a promising method for the identification of the possible sites of memory storage within live rodents as well as a method for stochastic gene expression within a population of cells. He is also very passionate about science communication and have worked with/led several initiatives to raise public awareness and excitement about neuroscience. He also has experience mentoring undergraduate research students and leading teams of graduate student and postdoctoral researchers.
