We are always interested in meeting students interested to learn more about the lab and exceptional postdoctoral candidates looking to pursue training in developmental genetics.
Principal InvestigatorAssistant Professor of Pediatrics
Dr. Stottmann grew up in Maryland and received B.S. (Physiology and Neurobiology) and M.S. (Developmental Neurobiology) degrees from the University of Maryland, College Park. He did his graduate work in the Duke University Medical Center Department of Cell Biology working on the role of Bone Morphogenetic Signaling in the developing nervous system. He pursued postdoctoral training at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School. As a postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Stottmann studied the techniques of forward genetics and positional cloning seeking ways to apply this tool to developmental biology. His long-term interest is in the genetic basis of human congenital defects.
Aria grew up on Long Island, New York. He completed his B.S. in Health Studies with a minor in Mathematics from Georgetown University in 2006 followed by his M.S. in Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology from Georgetown in 2007. He then went on to the NIH under a post-baccalaureate Intramural Research Training Award for one year to learn about the post-synaptic density complex using a mass spectrometric approach. Before coming to Cincinnati, he spent 2 years at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia studying Congenital Muscular Dystrophies. Upon joining the lab, Aria began studying the role of ciliary protein TTC21B in craniofacial development. Aria is currently in his 4th year in the Molecular and Developmental Biology program at the University of Cincinnati.
Research Assistant III
Megan is a native of the Cincinnati area and received her B.A. (Zoology) from Miami University in 2011. She joined the laboratory in January 2012.
Research FellowPostdoctoral Researcher
Ashley was born and raised in Beloit, Wisconsin. She completed her B.S. in Animal Science in 2008 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 2012, she completed her PhD at UW-Madison in Dairy Science with a minor in the Endocrinology Reproductive-Physiology program. The title of her thesis research was, “Transcriptomic, genomic, and functional analysis of imprinted genes on bovine pre-implantation embryo development.” Ashley joined the lab in September 2012.
Iris was born in Portugal, where she finished her bachelor’s degree in Biology (2012) at the “Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias”. After a year working in a cosmetic testing laboratory, she traveled to France in order to start her Genetics Master degree at the “Université Paris Diderot – Paris 7”. Iris is in now with us to complete her master degree’s internship.
Luke grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. He is currently pursuing a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Cincinnati. He is participating in the UC Co-op program and doing his practicum work in the Stottmann lab.
Research Assistant II
Chelsea is a native of Southwest Ohio. She went to Miami University and received her BS in Zoology in 2013. She joined the lab in February 2014.
John grew up in central Ohio and attended Wheaton College (IL) where he completed his B.S. in Biology in the spring of 2013. In the fall of 2013 he entered the Neuroscience Graduate Program at the University of Cincinnati. John joined the Stottmann Lab in the spring of 2014.
