Martine Therrien, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, University of California, Davis

Dr. Martine Therrien is an assistant professor in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology and a member of the Center for Neuroscience at the University of California, Davis. Her research aims to understand how genetics and environment impact microglia states and functions.

After receiving her Ph.D. at the University of Montreal in 2016, she moved to the Broad Institute in Cambridge, MA, for her postdoctoral work. In the laboratory of Beth Stevens, she developed new tools to interrogate microglia states and functions using iPSC-derived models. At the Center for Neuroscience of UC Davis, she uses a combination of single-cell-omics and stem cell models to study the regulation and impact of microglia states in neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
