Professor Stephanie Ceman received a B.S., from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Bacteriology, Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Genetics
She was a Postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago in Immunology
and a Postdoctoral fellow at Emory University in Atlanta, where she began her work on Fragile X syndrome.
She is currently an associate professor in the department of Cell and Developmental Biology at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign with affiliations with the Neuroscience Program, Beckman Institute and the Institute for Genomic Biology.
Her research is focused on understanding how protein translation regulation in the brain participates in learning and memory.
