About Franklin D Echevarria

Franklin joins us from Cleveland, Ohio where he spent the last two years completing his post-doctoral training at Case Western Reserve University researching the impact of macrophages on peripheral nerve regeneration. Before that, he spent his undergraduate and post-baccalaureate studies at Iowa State University and University of Missouri, Columbia respectively, where he was involved in a variety of research topics including maize genetics (because Iowa), lysosomal storage disease, and epigenetic regulation of imprinted genes. Wanting to focus on biomedical research, he then completed his PhD in Neuroscience at Vanderbilt University, where his thesis focused on inflammatory signaling in the pathogenesis of glaucoma.

Franklin lives with his wife Mary, who is a OB/GYN resident at UF, and their dog June and their cat Jack. He enjoys most outdoor activities, Netflix bingeing, and anything related to neuroscience.
