Spencer Schreier earned B.Sc. degrees in Biotechnology, Microbiology, and Biology at South Dakota State University and found his passion for molecular biology while doing various research projects as an undergraduate. He continued to obtain his M.Sc. in Plant Science at South Dakota State University where he applied molecular biology, confocal microscopy, and developed an assay to characterize the activity of an important transcription factor involved in soybean root nodule development. After moving to Reno, he shifted into working on facioscapulohumeral (FSHD) muscular dystrophy as a research associate at the University of Nevada, Reno. At UNR, he used various approaches to characterize a bi-transgenic mouse model that recaptures FSHD pathology and worked on different tissue culture projects. Besides his scientific work, Spencer enjoys hiking, homebrewing, mountain biking, and camping.
