Eric Wauson joined the physiology and pharmacology faculty at Des Moines University in January 2014. He received his undergraduate degree in biology from Creighton University in Omaha and his Ph.D. in pharmacology from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Prior to joining the DMU faculty, he participated in postdoctoral work with Melanie Cobb at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Dr. Wauson studies the roles of nutrient-responsive G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling in normal physiology and pathological conditions. He utilizes a variety of biochemical and physiological approaches in both tissue culture and mouse model systems to potentially reveal novel therapeutic options for treating cardiovascular disease and cancer.
