Biomechanical Control of Organ Growth
Dr. Kenneth Irvine is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and Interim Director of the Waksman Institute. He obtained a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Stanford University in 1991 and after post-doctoral work at Princeton University joined the faculty at Rutgers in 1995. He is a recipient of the Rutgers Board of Trustees Award for Excellence in Research and has served as President of the International Drosophila board, Associate Editor of Developmental Dynamics, and Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Dr. Irvine’s research group investigates mechanisms that control the size and shape of organs in our body. By identifying biochemical and biomechanical signaling networks that are required for the formation of normal organs, his studies have provided foundational insights into processes that go awry in congenital diseases and in cancer.
