About

David Krantz is a Professor in Residence in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

An undergraduate at Brown University, he completed an MD/PhD in the Medical Scientist Training Program at UCLA in 1991, where he performed his dissertation on Drosophila eye development with Larry Zipursky. After a residency in psychiatry at UCLA, he was awarded a Howard Hughes Postdoctoral Fellowship for Physicians to investigate the regulation of vesicular neurotransmitter transporters in Robert Edwards' laboratory at UCSF.

He returned to UCLA in 2000, and is currently using Drosophila to study how changes in the function of neurotransmitter transporters may influence synaptic transmission and behavior.
