Eric P. Spana

Associate Professor of the Practice of Biology

  • I am currently the Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies in Biology, so I can answer ALL the Bio major related question (and I sign almost all of the forms!)
  • My research is broadly on cell and developmental biology, but I really study how fruit flies make pigment and straight wings.
  • I helped develop the Biology curriculum at Duke Kunshan University and have taught courses there.
  • I give the occasional talk on the Biology of Science Fiction/Fantasy movies and TV like Harry Potter, Avengers, Star Wars and video games like Mass Effect and Destiny.
  • PVE > PVP. I have a terrible K/D.
