Biography

Rich Schneider was raised in Maplewood, New Jersey. He graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts in 1991.? As an undergraduate, he published his first paper, which was on skull evolution among domestic dogs and wild canids, following an Internship at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. He then received his Master's Degree in 1994 and his Doctoral Degree in 1998 from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. Both of his graduate thesis projects focused on skeletal development and evolution. Dr. Schneider also studied at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island, New York. For his Post-doctoral fellowship, Dr. Schneider was sponsored by a NIH/NIDCR training grant at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) beginning in 1998. His Postdoctoral work investigated the molecular and cellular biology of the craniofacial skeleton. In 2001, Dr. Schneider joined the faculty of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at UCSF, and in 2004 he was made Director of the Department's Molecular & Cell Biology Laboratory on the Parnassus Heights campus.
