Elizabeth J. Leslie, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Human Genetics
Email: ejlesli emory edu
Elizabeth received her BA from St. Olaf College in 2008, where she briefly flirted with field biology and population genetics of turtles. Thanks to a strong genetic predisposition for human genetics, she saw the light and has been studying human craniofacial phenotypes ever since. Elizabeth received her PhD in Genetics in 2012 from Jeff Murray's lab at the University of Iowa. At the University of Pittsburgh, she completed her postdoctoral training (with Mary Marazita) and her first faculty appointment. Outside of the lab, Elizabeth can be found behind her camera lens.
Lab Alumni: Nadia Harerimana (rotation student), Maria Turcan (undergrad), Kristiana Josifi (research specialist)
