Marc Servetnick, Ph.D.
Chair, Division of Biological Sciences
Dr. Servetnick earned his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of California, Berkeley in 1985. He was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen, Germany, and at the University of Virginia. He taught at Ithaca College, in Ithaca, NY, for 15 years, where he also served as Chair, before coming to UW Bothell. He has also served as Program Director at the National Science Foundation.
Dr. Servetnick’s research focuses on embryonic development and evolution. He is interested in how genes that are important in development have taken on new roles over evolutionary time, and how these changes have contributed to the emergence of different animals. His current research focuses on the T-box gene family in the development of the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis.
