Sr. Field Application Scientist
Stephen Straub received his Ph.D. in Pharmacology from the University of Rochester, where he elucidated the role of inositol trisphospate receptors, ryanodine receptors, and mitochondria in generating calcium oscillations in electrically non-excitable cells of exocrine tissues. He performed his post-doctoral studies in the lab of Dr. Mark Nelson at the University of Vermont, where he studied the role of ion channels and calcium signals in regulating cerebral blood flow in response to neuronal activity. He worked in the Diabetes group at Pfizer Groton, where he established a series of live cell imaging and electrophysiology assays for quantitating the effects of therapeutics on islet cells and the role of the gut-brain axis on metabolism. He has expertise in cellular, tissue, and high content imaging and electrophysiology. He is currently a Senior Field Application Scientist at PerkinElmer, where he supports High Content Imaging as well as automation and informatics solutions for drug screening.
