I am a Professor of Biology and I co-direct the undergraduate Neuroscience major at Trinity University. My research focuses on the role that astrocytes, the brain's nurse cells, have in managing the neurons' membrane integrity that allow neurons to last an entire lifetime without being replaced. I have worked in the biomedical sciences for over 45 years. Eight years ago, I moved to a teaching and research position at a small Liberal Arts school and have the joy of working closely with students and colleagues that share the wonderment of the natural world with me.
