About Marlene Murray

I was born in Trinidad and Tobago where I completed high school before attending Oakwood College. I earned my PhD in Molecular Genetics from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, working on the effects of antibipolar drugs on a gene in the inositol signaling pathway in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In 2001, I joined the Biology faculty at Andrews University after completing my postdoctoral training on multidrug resistance in leukemia at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Here at Andrews I teach Genetics, Human Biology and Molecular Genetics.
Using the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as my model system, my research currently focuses on characterizing the molecular targets of antibipolar drugs in the inositol signaling pathway. This yeast is ideal for this study because it is a simple eukaryote whose genes possess sequence and functional similarity to that of humans.
In addition to my research, I also coordinate the biology program for the Math and Science Center in association with the Berrien County Interdisciplinary School District.
