 Research Interests/Scholastic Profile:

Mr. Hubbard is currently responsible coordination and management of science laboratory activities to assist faculty in teaching and research endeavors.  Previous research revolved around the signaling and cytoskeletal elements responsible for cell division in Trypanosoma brucei.  Additional research focused on the use of transgenic and genetic models to examine the pathways involved in oxidative stress and aging in Drosophila melanogaster utilizing a multidisciplinary Molecular Biology approach.
