- About Stephanie
Stephanie Cerceo Page, Ph.D. joined the Lieber Institute in the fall of 2013 as a Postdoctoral Fellow, and moved to a role as a Staff Scientist in the spring of 2017 before her current role as a Staff Scientist II in 2020. She uses cellular imaging techniques and molecular biology to study the structure and function of iPSC-derived neurons from schizophrenic and control patients. She attended Penn State University as a member of the Schreyer Honors College and graduated in 2003 with a B. S. in Biology. Following graduation, she spent several years studying alterations in cortical development following neonatal exposure to antipsychotic drugs. She then earned her doctorate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore in 2012. For her dissertation work in Scott Thompson’s laboratory, she studied dendritic protein synthesis during long-term potentiation in the hippocampus, a critical step in memory formation.
