90 Briggs Hall


1973 PhD University of California, Berkeley Entomology (Toxicology)
1969 BS Louisiana State University Entomology (Chemistry)

Research Interests:

The laboratory has several major areas. We are interested in control of development by chemical mediators in mammals and insects. In mammals we work on enzyme regulation of epoxyeicosanoids that control hypertension and inflammation. In insects we study the hormones that control metamorphosis. We also work on the development of high throughput systems for metabolite profiling by mass spectrometry and by immunoassay.
