Meet The Anderson Lab
Dr. Anderson is very busy raising future scientists and medical professionals during the day, and raising future tax-payers on nights and weekends. In the rare instance of a free moment, he enjoys playing piano, reading a good book (historical fiction or sci-fi), and sports/outdoor recreation.

I am a first year PhD student in the Clinical Pharmaceutical Sciences program at UIowa- College of Pharmacy, and the project I'm working on involves examining the effects of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) on cardiac fibroblasts and the biochemistry of collagen cross-linking. I have a bachelor's in chemical biology from Brown University and most of my undergraduate research experience involved organic synthesis and characterization. In my spare time I enjoy reading, particularly books about medicine, history, and psychiatry.
I'm interested in studying the interplay between catecholamine metabolism, via MAO, and mitochondrial function and the implications of each in the development of cardiac myopathies. When I'm not studying mitochondria, I enjoy hiking and podcasts.
I am from Fuquay-Varina, NC. My research focuses on the lipid-raft protein Prohibitin and its role in mediating inflammation. I have many interests, but I particularly enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, traveling, and learning new things.
I am passionate about patient care and healthcare innovation. As a postdoctorate with a medical degree, I am interested in employing translational research to improve quality outcomes. I enjoy playing tennis, being a Detroit sports fan, baking, and reading.
I am from Fayetteville, North Carolina, and I am studying biochemistry here at ECU. After graduation, I plan to attend medical school and pursue a career as a physician. When I'm not in the research lab or the library, I enjoy playing and coaching volleyball.
