Genetics Q & A

2019 July IMG_0687.JPG

My two college degrees were from Harvard College (A.B.) and the University of California (Ph.D., Berkeley). Academic positions I’ve had were at the University of Minnesota (Dept. of Zoology) and the University of Miami (Coral Gables, Florida, Dept. of Biology). My teaching specialties at the undergraduate level were in molecular and cell biology, general genetics, and human genetics. I’ve held research grants from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the American Cancer Society. I am a current member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a former member of the American Society of Human Genetics, the Genetics Society of America, the American Society for Cell Biology, and the Electron Microscopy Society of America.

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no long wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.”  -- Albert Einstein, The World As I See It  (1931)
