KATHLEEN KINNALLY, PhD
Professor and Associate Chair, Department of Basic Science and Craniofacial Biology
Cell death (apoptosis); manipulating cell death to prevent cancer and heart attacks; an expert in the electrophysiology of mitochondrial membranes, Dr. Kinnally studies programmed cell death, a pivotal area in understanding basic mechanisms in cancer and heart attacks.
Principal investigator on a four-year, $1.4 million NIH grant for research on the inner workings of cell death.
