Dennis W. Grogan

University of Cincinnati, USA


Dennis W. Grogan studied biological sciences and chemistry at the University of Missouri, Columbia Campus, receiving the A.B. degree in 1978, and studied microbiology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, receiving the M.S. and the Ph.D. degrees in 1980 and 1985, respectively. His postdoctoral training with Wolfram Zillig (Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry, Martinsried, Germany) focused on the microbiology and molecular biology of hyperthermophilic archaea. Subsequent postdoctoral positions with Giuseppe Bertani (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena) and Robert Gunsalus (University of California, Los Angeles) focused on the physiology and genetics of Sulfolobus acidocaldarius. In 1994, he joined the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Cincinnati, where he and his students investigate basic genetic processes in Sulfolobus spp. and other archaea that thrive in extreme environments.
