Charles Martin, Rutgers University

Dr. Martin is an Emeritus Professor of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at Rutgers University. He received his Ph.D. in Genetics from Florida State University and engaged in postdoctoral research in genetics and membrane biology at the University of Texas at Austin. He has taught General Biology, as well as undergraduate and graduate level courses in Genetics and Molecular Cell Biology, throughout his career at Rutgers. An award-winning teacher for more than 30 years, in 2011 Dr. Martin was named Professor of the Year by the Molecular Biosciences Graduate Student Association. His research on gene regulation of membrane protein enzyme systems in yeast and other fungi illustrates the interdisciplinary nature of the life sciences, and has been published in high-ranking journals and presented in invited lectures at national and international scientific meetings. He has served as an editorial board member of the Journal of Biological Chemistry and as the Chair of the Gordon Research Conference on the Molecular Cell Biology of Lipids. He has also served as a consultant for numerous biotechnology projects and holds patents in the area of genetic engineering. He has been an active member of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the American Society for Cell Biology, and the Genetics Society of America. He continues to be committed to teaching and is grateful for the opportunities to pursue a teaching and research career in what continues to be the most exciting era of the biological sciences.
