Dr. Stephen L. Gasior, Biology


Currently scientist at DowDuPont. Education and research is Molecular Biology. Former educator at college level.

I received my Ph.D. in molecular genetics and cell biology in 1999 from the University of Chicago.
My research concerned how breaks in DNA are repaired in yeast meiosis.
My postdoctoral research at the U of Chicago and Tulane Cancer Center both investigated DNA repair mechanisms in B cell development and then mobile element retrotransposition.

I then transitioned to the education area teaching biology at U of New Orleans then Ball State University. In those positions I developed educational activities in Second Life and OpenSimulator.

Currently, I am working to develop and advance genome editing technologies in corn for the seed company DowDuPont.
