Rich Binari, Ph.D.
I earned a B.S. in Biology from the University of Notre Dame, and subsequently completed a Ph.D. in Genetics from Harvard University in the laboratory of Norbert Perrimon, where my graduate work consisted of a molecular and phenotypic analysis of two genes involved in segmentation of the Drosophila embryo. After a postdoctoral interlude in the laboratory of Armen Manoukian at the Ontario Cancer Institute studying the role of heparin sulfate proteoglycans in embryonic development in Drosophila, I returned to the Perrimon lab. I am currently working on projects to determine the functions of miRNAs during development, and to generate new tools for lineage analysis.
