Professor of Molecular & Cellular Biology | Genetics & Genomics Faculty Advisor
College of Biological Sciences
Research Interests: Eukaryotic cell growth regulation. Researchers in Dr. Powers' lab use S. cerevisiae as a model to focus on the target of rapamycin (TOR) signal transduction network. They examine the effects of intracellular signals as well as environmental stimuli on gene regulation, protein translation and trafficking, and complex formation.
Students interested in meeting with Dr. Powers to discuss research and career opportunities can make an appointment via the BASC appointment system. If there are no times available, please email him to set up an appointment.
