Seth Kelly, Ph.D.

I received my B.S. from a small liberal arts school in western Pennsylvania called Grove City College and then moved to Atlanta, GA where I completed a Ph.D. in the Biochemistry, Cell, and Developmental Biology (BCDB) graduate program at Emory University.  During my Ph.D. I worked in the lab of Anita Corbett in the department of biochemistry.  I then completed a teaching/research postdoctoral fellowship at Emory in the lab of Ken Moberg where I learned all about the wonders of Drosophila genetics and the amazing field of neuroscience.  I moved to Wooster in the summer of 2013 where I am currently an assistant professor in the biology department and the neuroscience program. 

Classes I have taught in the past or teach currently:

  • BIOL111: Foundations of Biology
  • BIOL201: Gateway to Molecular and Cellular Biology
  • BIOL307: Developmental Biology
  • BIOL380: Cellular Neuroscience
  • BCMB401: Introduction to Junior IS (for BCMB majors)
  • FYS (a seminar course for incoming first-year students): Beans and Leaves: How two ancient plants changed the modern world
