- 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. Her group is particularly interested in using advanced imaging and transcriptomic techniques in the postmortem human brain, rodent brain and cell culture models to study the role of various genetic risk factors in the development of neuropsychiatric illness. She also serves as Director of the LIBD Imaging Facility, where she oversees the Institute’s Imaging program and microscopy facility. She is a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University and earned her PhD at the University of Maryland, Baltimore where she studied dendritic protein synthesis during long-term potentiation in the hippocampus, a critical step in memory formation. Her post-doctoral work at the Institute focused on the role of neuronal activity and the psychiatric risk gene Tcf4 in cortical development.
