Dr. Kasie Cole-Edwards

Kasie Cole-Edwards received her undergraduate degree in Biology at Baylor University.  She received her Ph.D. in Cell Biology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, where she studied the effects of DNA repair on neuronal death during oxidative injury.  Her post doctoral work focused on the protein kinase signaling underlying synaptic plasticity in the kindling model of epileptogenesis.  She is the author of numerous publications and is the recipient of several awards and fellowships including a NIEHS training fellowship.  She currently works for a small pharmaceutical research services company developing protocols and study reports related to ongoing bioequivalence testing.  She has over nine years experience writing and editing scientific and medical documents.  Her primary areas of expertise are cellular physiology, oxidative stress, excitotoxicity, apoptosis, transcriptional regulation, DNA repair, synaptic plasticity, signal transduction, and neuropathology.  Other areas of experience include basic pharmacology and bioavailability studies.
