Faculty and Staff

Patton Walter A. Patton, Associate Professor of Chemistry; Director of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
B.S., Susquehanna University; Ph.D., Lehigh University; Postdoctoral Fellow, National Institutes of Health

Dr. Patton is interested in the structure-function relationships in proteins. Most recently his work focuses on the features of E. coli GMP synthetase that facitlitate ammonia transfer from a domain where it is synthesized to the domain in which it is utilized. His work integrates chemical, biochemical and molecular biological methods (e.g. polymerase chain reaction) to make "designer" proteins at the DNA level. Once expressed in bacteria, these proteins are purified in order to study their function.

Carey Robert Carey, Assistant Professor of Biology
B.A., Hiram College; Ph.D., The Pennsylvania State University

Dr. Carey teaches genetics, microbiology and general biology. His research focuses on the evolutionary genetics of plant gene families and how the cell wall modifying proteins encoded by some of these families are involved in plant development.

Lappas Courtney M. Lappas, Associate Professor of Biology
B.S., University of Richmond; M.S., University of Virginia; Ph.D., University of Virginia

Dr. Lappas teaches immunology, molecular biology and general biology. She is interested in T lymphocyte biology, with special emphasis on both the role played by T cell subsets in various inflammatory disorders and the potential use of adenosine analogs to modulate these untoward responses.
