Dr. Kenneth Myers has joined the Department of Biological Sciences at University of the Sciences as an assistant professor of biology.
Dr. Myers most recently completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Laboratory of Cell and Tissue Morphodynamics which is an intramural research program within the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute in Bethesda, Md. In his laboratory at University of the Sciences, his research is focused on using high-resolution light microscopy to identify how individual endothelial cells are instructed by their micro-environment to move, interact, and organize themselves to form the blood vessels of the body.
Dr. Myers has served as an instructor at the Woods Hole Marine Biology Laboratory and has written nine peer-reviewed articles, two review articles, and three book chapters. Since beginning his graduate studies in 2004, Dr. Myers has received several honors, some of which include: The Cell Migration Consortium Conference Award, an Independent Predoctoral Kirschstein NRSA Fellowship, and the Drexel Critical Research Fellowship.
Dr. Myers, who resides in Philadelphia with his wife Ashley and their son Brayden, earned his PhD in molecular, cellular biology, and genetics from Drexel University College of Medicine and his BS in biology from Philadelphia University.
