Dr. Adam Collier has a scientific background in experimental psychology with broad experience in neuroscience and behavioral neurobiology. During his postdoctoral work at The Rockefeller University in New York, Dr. Collier used preclinical zebrafish models to investigate how embryonic exposure to alcohol affects the development of neuropeptide neurons, how these neuronal changes contribute to behavioral disturbances, and what role the neuroimmune system plays in mediating the effects of alcohol on neuronal development and behavior. Prior to joining EGC, Dr. Collier was awarded a F32 National Research Service Award (NRSA) and a Loan Repayment Program (LRP) award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for his postdoctoral research and has also worked extensively on successfully funded R01 awards from the NIH. Dr. Collier has published over 20 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters and has regularly served as a manuscript reviewer for scientific journals. As a Scientific Consultant at EGC, Dr. Collier is passionate about applying his extensive grant writing experience and scientific knowledge to support small businesses and entrepreneurs in developing impactful new technologies. In his free time, Dr. Collier enjoys spending time with his family, collecting old video games, biking on the Local greenways, and snowboarding.
