I have taught at Belmont University since 1985. My fields of interest within biology are the cellular and molecular basis of biological processes. I received a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Georgia and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Vanderbilt University. Following completion of my Ph.D., I did postdoctoral research in the Department of Biochemistry in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where I studied hormonal systems of blood pressure control, including renin and atrial natriuretic peptide.
Since coming to Belmont, I have been involved in undergraduate research, leading students in projects on RNA bacterial viruses, stimulus-response in C. elegans and Chlamydomonas, and physiology; classroom instruction, teaching courses in molecular and cellular biology, physiology, and research techniques, and in the Honors Program, both tutoring students and serving as Director of the Program.
My principal interests outside of academics revolve around my family, wife Linda, son Scott, daughter Adrian, and grandson Cade. I am an active member of Crievewood Baptist Church.
I would like to contact Dr. Grammer.
