Eric Senning completed his B.A. in Biochemistry at the Colorado College in Colorado Springs, CO. He then joined the lab of Dr. Andrew Marcus at the University of Oregon to investigate the microscopic fluctuations of mitochondria in cells and energy transfer in fluorescent proteins with Fourier Imaging Correlation Spectroscopy (FICS), a specialized fluorescence technique. After finishing his Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Oregon, Eric pursued his interest in dynamics of physiological processes by joining the lab of Dr. Sharona Gordon at the University of Washington as a post-doctoral fellow. His post-doctoral research on the ion channel TRPV1 encompassed single molecule fluorescence, energy transfer, and electrophysiological techniques. In 2017 Eric joined the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Texas at Austin.
