Principal Investigator:  Ron June

Dr. June received his undergraduate degree in Engineering Sciences with Honors from Dartmouth College where he worked with Drs. Francis Kennedy, Rick Greenwald, and Beth Winkelstein.  Dr. June earned a Ph.D. at the University of California Davis working with Dr. David Fyhrie to understand the role of polymer dynamics in cartilage biomechanics.  For his postdoctoral studies, Dr. June first worked with Dr. Robert Terkeltaub at the San Diego VA Hospital in UCSD's Division of Rheumatology.  The majority of Dr. June's postdoctoral training was in the lab of Dr. Steven F. Dowdy where he learned protein transduction and various aspects of molecular cell biology.
