Danielle Hamill

Professor of Biological Sciences


  • B.A., Lawrence University
  • Ph.D., University of Kansas


Danielle Hamill teaches courses in cell biology, genetics, and animal development. Her research interests include regulation of cell division and developmental processes. For these studies, the Hamill lab uses roundworms, including Caenorhabditis elegans. As these processes are highly conserved, what they learn from studying cell division and development in worms will likely provide a better understanding of these important processes in other organisms as well. Hamill also serves as the pre-physical therapy advisor.
