Biography

Dr. Cronin holds the degrees of B.S. from Texas A&M University and Ph.D. from the University of California at San Diego. Dr. Cronin specializes in the area of cell biology, focusing on understanding the cell biology of two genes COD1/SPF1 and yor291w in yeastSaccharomyces cerevisiae.  COD1/SPF1 and yor291w encode proteins belonging to a family of ion pumps known as P-type ATPases  His past work focused on role of Cod1p in maintaining cellular ion homeostasis and in maintaining the function of the endoplasmic reticulum. Currently he is in the process of identifying the molecular substrates of Cod1p and yor291p.
