Stephen J, Doxsey, PhD
Stephen J. Doxsey, PhD, professor of molecular medicine, biochemistry & molecular pharmacology and cell biology, and influential researcher in the field of centrosome biology, was profiled in the June issue of the newsletter of the American Society of Cell Biology. Dr. Doxsey, winner of the UMass President’s Public Service Award for his work in establishing AP Biology laboratory opportunities for Worcester high school students and whose groundbreaking research is supported by the prestigious W. M. Keck Foundation, has long been active in the ASCB, one of the most prominent scientific societies in biomedical research.
The profile follows Doxsey’s evolution from a lab technician right out of college to an ambitious and successful scientist, with a flair for squash and a love of ticks, who established his own lab at UMass Medical School in 1993. The story also offers insight into Doxsey’s interest in encouraging a love of biology in high school students. Read the profile here:http://www.ascb.org/files/profiles/stevedoxsey.pdf
