Principal Investigator

tlevin (at)

Tera obtained her B.A. in Biology and Biochemistry at Oberlin College, with an undergraduate research focus in disease ecology. She then trained in molecular biology and immunology at the NIH, before pursuing her Ph.D. in Molecular and Cell Biology, UC Berkeley. There, she worked with Nicole King to discover mechanisms of bacteria-induced multicellularity in microeukaryotes called choanoflagellates. For her postdoctoral training, she worked with Harmit Malik at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.

Outside of lab, Tera enjoys hiking, tide pooling, playing board games, and hanging out with her cats.
