Andrew Chisholm is Professor in the Cell and Developmental Biology Section in the Division of Biological Sciences at the University of California San Diego. He performed his PhD thesis work in C. elegans developmental genetics at the UK Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology, in Cambridge. In his postdoctoral studies with H.R. Horvitz at MIT, Dr. Chisholm discovered how the C. elegans pax-6 gene controls positional identities along the body axis. His lab has focused on the genetic control of tissue morphogenesis including the Eph receptor/Ephrin signaling pathway in embryonic morphogenesis. More recently his lab has developed C. elegans as a model for axonal regeneration and skin wound healing.
