ADMINISTRATIVE EXPERIENCE


A. At USUHS: Course Director for Microscopic Anatomy, 1980-1990. Provided major impetus for establishment of new Anatomy curriculum and planning of Anatomy Blocks I and IV. Course Director for Anatomy Blocks I and IV, 1990 to 1999. Course Director, ISFa, 2000 to 2008.

Strongly involved in the planning for and acquisition of the BioRad MRC-500 confocal scanning microscope, as well as ancillary equipment. Coordinator, Confocal Scanning Microscopy Facility, 1989-1990, during which time the CSM facility was brought on line.

Effective July, 1995, assumed the position of Director, BIC (60% of effort) in addition to the above duties (40% of effort). Resigned this position, February, 2003.


B. At Duke: Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Anatomy, 1971-1976. Reorganized graduate program and oversaw all phases thereof including recruitment, admissions, financing, advising, course offerings, preliminary examinations, thesis proposals and defenses, etc. Anatomy Department Representative, Cell and Molecular Biology Training Program, 1974-1976. Also a member of the multidepartmental committee which prepared the NIH application that led to funding of that program.


TEACHING EXPERIENCE


A. At USUHS: Interdepartmental course in Cellular and Molecular Biology, 1989 to 2006. Microscopic Anatomy 1979-1990. Anatomy Blocks I and IV 1990 to 1999. ISFa and SFOS, 2000 to 2008.

RESEARCH INTERESTS


General interest in cell biological problems, with primary focus on mechanisms of biological motility and on the structure and function of biological membranes. Major research effort was on biological motility with specific emphasis on the ongoing effort to use Physarum polycephalum as a eucaryotic system in which to study various types of normal, abnormal and pathologic cell movements using combinations of phenomenological, morphological, biochemical and genetic approaches. Studies were aimed at understanding the rearrangements of cytoskeletal elements that accompany the amoeboflagellate transformation of the gametes of Physarum; such investigations are of special interest because the transformation involves rapid and extensive changes in the cytoskeleton without protein synthesis. These studies dovetail with collaborative studies of amphibian melanophores responding to melatonin, the role of extracellular matrix components in guiding the movements of gastrulation stage cells, and of Entamoeba histolytica exposed to tubulozole. Current research makes heavy use of modern light microscopic technology (including video recording, video-based image enhancement and analysis, laser microsurgery, confocal scanning microscopy and three dimensional reconstruction) as well as large format two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (including computer assisted data acquisition, analysis and databasing).

At Duke University Medical Center:


NOTE: Complete records on these grants were lost when the PI moved from Duke to USUHS (in 1979); neither NIH nor NSF maintain records back far enough to reconstruct exact titles, dates, or amounts. The grant numbers and subjects are accurate; the other information is a close approximation.


A. NIH Career Development Award (5-K04-GM70851) from 1/1/73 until 12/31/77. This award paid the salary (including fringe benefits, etc.) of the PI and was the basis of support for the PI while he established his first lab and obtained NIH and NSF support for research projects.


B. NIH Grant R01-GM20141. This was a grant that ran from about 1975 until shortly after the PI moved to USUHS. It supported most of his equipment acquisitions and the bulk of his research on the actin and myosin of Physarum plasmodia. Renewal of this grant was not sought.


C. NSF Grant BMS-74-04967-A01 ran for approximately three years. It payed the salary and funded the research of Dr. David Jacobson, who did post-doctoral research with the PI on the amoeboflagellate transformation (AFT) in Physarum. Dr. Jacobson's basic interest was in the isolation of motility mutants; the collaboration with him formed the basis by which the PI gradually shifted his focus from plasmodial proteins to the rapid cytoskeletal changes that characterize the AFT. Dr. Kathryn Pagh completed her Ph.D. with the PI as part of this grant and grant B (above). Renewal of this grant was not sought.


D. NSF Grant GB-37854 was a two or three year grant that ran in the mid 1970s. Its principle focus was the goal of isolating proteins in the membranes of the rough endoplasmic reticulum that are responsible for ribosome-membrane interaction; this work was a continuation of studies begun by the PI while he was a post-doc at the Rockefeller University. Dr. Jennifer Haas completed her Ph.D. under this grant. Because other laboratories were making more rapid progress in this area, renewal of the grant was not sought.
