Dr. Janet Larkin serves as the Scientific Review Officer for CSR’s Membrane Biology and Protein Processing Study Section. She came to this position from an Oak Ridge Institute Senior Research Fellowship at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, where she investigated the role of rab3D in the regulation of protein trafficking in epithelial cells. Dr. Larkin received her Ph.D. in cell biology from the University of Texas Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Her research there focused on clathrin-mediated endocytosis of low density lipoprotein. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in cell biology with Nobel Laureate George Palade at the Yale University School of Medicine, where she studied the post-translational modification and trafficking of the polymeric IgA receptor in healthy and diseased liver cells. She then served on the faculty of the University of Connecticut Health Science Center, the Mayo Clinic, and Barnard College, where her research focused on the molecular regulation of protein trafficking in polarized epithelial cells.
