Who we are

The Biological Macromolecule Shared Resource is co-directed by Shirley Taylor, Ph.D., who brings molecular biology, cell culture and protein expression experience, and Darrell Peterson, Ph.D., a protein biochemist with extensive experience in protein production and purification. The core employs a resource manager, Kimberly Stratton, M.S., and two full-time research specialists, each of whom takes primary responsibility for one of the three major areas, but with sufficient cross-training in all services offered to ensure continuity and maximal efficiency.
