Research Assistant Professor Emeritus

I am a cellular and molecular biologist, who specializes in ciliate chemosensory signal transduction.  In recent years, I have applied the latest genomic, molecular, and proteomic techniques to the study of GPI anchored proteins and calcium ATPases (PMCAs) in chemoresponse.
