2022 Fellow

Ethan Perets

PhD Institution
Yale University

Ethan’s PhD research contributed to the fundamental understanding of the role of supramolecular water assemblies in biomolecular structure and suggests new answers to why water is necessary for life. As a Schmidt Science Fellow, he will pivot from biophysics to neuroscience and plans to build experimental models to treat neurodegenerative diseases by creating high-precision imaging technologies. Ethan hopes to unveil how the living brain processes chemical and electrical information.
