Kristin Anderson is a member of the Hirschey Lab, an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology, and a Faculty Member of the Sarah W. Stedman Nutrition and Metabolism Center and the Duke Molecular Physiology Institute at Duke University Medical Center. She earned a Bachelors of Science at the University of Kentucky and a PhD in Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with Gerhard Meissner. She was a post-doctoral fellow with Tony Means at Duke University where she studied Ca2+-calmodulin-dependent protein kinase signaling pathways in T cells. Following her post-doctoral work she continued with Tony Means as Assistant Research Professor studying metabolic roles for CaM kinase cascades in brain and liver. With extensive experience in the field of protein post-translational modification biology, she is currently interested in how acetylation and other post-translational modifications integrate biological signals.
