University of Colorado, USA
Professor Robert O. Poyton teaches and heads a research group in the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He received his BA degree Magna cum Laude in Biology from Brown University, his PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of California, Berkeley, and his post-doctoral work in Biochemistry at Cornell University. Dr Poyton has been recognized for his research on: oxygen sensing, and oxygen-regulated gene expression, cellular energy production: the structure, function, and assembly of cytochrome c oxidase, mitochondrial dysfunction in aging and degenerative disease; and signaling pathways between the mitochondrion and the nucleus. He has traveled and lectured widely on these topics.
