Arthur Edison, Ph.D.

Professor, University of Georgia

Research Interests:  Metabolomics and natural products chemistry to understand the chemical basis of behavior. Our primary organism for this work is Caenorhabditis elegans, a small, free-living nematode. C. elegans has been one of the best studied animals in science, with an extensive genetics, anatomy, cell, and developmental biology knowledge-base. Less is known about the role of small molecules in its development and behavior, and our studies in metabolomics can leverage the extensive understanding of this worm. We also are very interested in other nematodes, including parasitic species.

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, Orlando, Integrative Metabolism Program Director
(Ph.D. from University of California/Los Angeles)

Research Interests: The action of Sterol-Regulatory-Element-Binding Proteins (SREBPs) in nutrient sensing and responses to organic and biological threats; how fundamental processes of gene regulation are used in the control and management of metabolic homeostasis.
