Edward Siden, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Biology

Field of Interest

Since College I have been interested in the process of development.  As a graduate student I learned about the immune system and how it was able to protect us from the nearly infinite numbers of pathogens that might assault us.  I worked on the molecules responsible for this immunity and the amazing story they tell about how mutations can serve the immune system to be more powerful.

In the Fall of 2007 I was able to conduct research at Rockefeller University in the Department of Molecular Immunology, during a Sabbatical leave.
