Dr. Joshua Mast


Josh leads the Drosophila drug screening pipeline at Perlara PBC, and has used fly models to pursue questions in fields ranging from molecular genetics, to cellular biology, to development and neural circuit function. Josh received his PhD in Neuroscience from Stanford University in the laboratory of Tom Clandinin, exploring the molecular and cellular mechanisms driving aspects of synapse development and degeneration in the fly visual system. He continued his studies as a postdoctoral fellow with David Stern at Princeton University and Janelia Research Campus, HHMI researching the impact of genetic variation on neural circuit function and behavior among closely related Drosophila species.
