Neurobiologist Orie Shafer, an assistant professor in UM's Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology department, is featured in a segment of a new online video series from NBC Learn in partnership with the National Science Foundation. The segment covers his research on "internal clocks" in fruit flies, in particular how the master clock communicates time through the network of brain neurons. The segment also includes his collaboration with Victoria Booth, a UM associate professor of mathematics, who is using mathematical modeling to predict good targets for the biological research.
