About the Serial Volume Editor

Dennis Grayson

Dr. Grayson has been interested in mechanisms associated with gene expression for over 20 years. He joined the laboratory of Dr. James E. Darnell, Jr. at the Rockefeller University on 1984 to study cell-type specific transcription factors. This led to the identification of HNF3A as a hepatocyte nuclear factor important for activating the expression of multiple genes in hepatocytes. In 1988, Dr. Grayson joined the Fidia-Georgetown Institute for the Neurosciences and with the support of Dr. Erminio Costa, initiated a program in studying gene expression in neurons. From 1994-1998, he moved to the Allegheny University of the Health Sciences in Pittsburgh and developed a program in molecular psychiatry. He continued his interests in psychiatry and joined the Psychiatric Institute in 1998. This represented a unique opportunity to join his long time collaborators, Drs. Costa and Guidotti to pursue molecular underpinnings of schizophrenia. Dr. Grayson has received NRSA post-doctoral support, R01 and K04 funding from the NIH over the years. He has published over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals and actively reviews NIH grants and post-doctoral fellowships. In addition, Dr. Grayson has been invited to speak at numerous national and international meetings.
