Brandon C., Ph.D.


Brandon earned a B.S. in biology and an M.S. in molecular biology from East Carolina University, where he studied adaptive immunity. He earned his Ph.D. in molecular and cellular biology from the Medical University of South Carolina, with an emphasis in marine biomedicine, where he used peptide chemistry and mass spectrometry techniques to investigate the structure and function of antimicrobial peptides from marine shrimp that target drug resistant fungi. Brandon worked as a Research Fellow at Clemson University Genomics Institute on a wide range of projects, including the proteomic evaluation of cell death in flowering plants and the development of functional genomics resources for blackberry. He has since trained as a research fellow at the National Institute of Environmental and Health Science (NIEHS) where his research focuses on the control of mRNA stability by a zinc finger protein in the fission yeast, Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Brandon has experience with NSF and NIH grant mechanisms and has served as an NIH internal manuscript reviewer. He has served as a peer reviewer for several journals, including: Biochimie, BMC Genomics, Chemical Biology and Drug Design, Developmental and Comparative Immunology, Gene and Marine Biotechnology.
