Dr. Cappell received his B.S. in marine science and Bbiology from the University of Miami, FL. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he studied G protein signaling in yeast in the lab of Dr. Henrik Dohlman. He completed his postdoctoral training as a Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Tobias Meyer at Stanford University. His postdoctoral research focused on understanding how cells make the decision to divide.
