research overview

  • Jeffrey Cameron’s research group focuses on the principles and mechanisms underlying the spatial and temporal organization of photosynthesis in cyanobacteria and eukaryotic organelles using synthetic biology and microscopy. Ancestors of modern day cyanobacteria were the first to perform oxygenic photosynthesis. These reactions have changed the atmospheric composition of this planet and have dramatically shifted the evolutionary trajectory of earth’s inhabitants. Because photosynthesis provides the building blocks for the generation of food, fuel, green chemicals, and other useful products essential for life on earth, understanding how photosynthesis is regulated and identifying potential routes for improvement will benefit society and the environment.

  • BCHM 1020 - A Path to Success: Introduction to the Biochemistry Major
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022
    This course will help students navigate their first year of college and develop the skills needed for academic success as Biochemistry majors. Students will improve academic strategies (i.e. time management, problem-solving and study skills), identify available campus resources, learn how to get involved in clubs and gain research experience, and explore career opportunities as a biochemistry graduate. This is a first-year elective course specifically designed for first year and other students exploring their educational and career opportunities. Recommended restriction: New BCHM majors.
