Gerard P. McNeil received a B.S. degree in biology in 1985 from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth and a Ph.D. degree in biomedical sciences in 1997 from the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, Mass, USA. From 1997 to 2001, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Neuroscience at Tufts University School of Medicine where he studied circadian rhythms in Drosophila. McNeil joined the faculty at York College/CUNY in NY in 2001 and is presently an Associate Professor at both the Department of Biology at York College, where he is currently the Department Chair, and the CUNY Graduate Center Programs in Biology and Biochemistry. His research interests include understanding the role of RNA-binding proteins as regulators of early development and circadian rhythms using Drosophila as a model system.
