Assistant Professor, Integrative Biology & Director of Kaufer Laboratory, Berkeley

Daniela Kaufer is an assistant professor in the Department of Integra- tive Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. She also holds appointments in the Stem Cell Center and the Neuroscience Institute. Her research focuses on the molecular events that underlie the plasticity of the brain in the face of stress and neurological insults, bridging the gap between physiological effects and the molecular and cellular events that underlie them, and has identified novel mechanisms through which stress affects the brain.
