Keith Murphy, PhD
Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University
Keith completed his Ph.D. at the Scripps Research Institute and Florida Atlantic University with Dr. William Ja, where he studied the genetic and neuronal integration of sleep and feeding. His work focused on the development of a high-throughput system for measuring sleep and feeding in the fruit fly which he used to examine the role of food consumption and energy expenditure in sleep.
He is now a postdoctoral fellow in the de Lecea lab at Stanford, where he will be exploring new technologies to identify circuits bridging digestive/metabolic sensory systems with sleep in mammals.
