Daniel Needleman is the Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics and Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology in the Center for Systems Biology, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard. His laboratory studies the internal working of cells using a combination of approaches from physics and biology. Professor Needleman writes: “From the grandest perspective, we are trying to understand how life arises from non-living matter. From a more practical perspective, our emphasis is on obtaining a quantitative understanding of how cells divide, to both advance basic science and to improve treatment of human infertility by advancing clinical in vitro fertilization (IVF).” He received a B.A. in Physics from Brandeis University in 1998 and a Ph.D. in Physics from U.C. Santa Barbara in 2005. For details on his research, see https://needleman.seas.harvard.edu/.
