She is also Faculty Affiliate of Duke’s Center for Child and Family Policy. Gassman-Pines received her BA with distinction in Psychology from Yale University and PhD in Community and Developmental Psychology from New York University. Her research focuses on low-wage work, family life and the effects of welfare and employment policy on child and maternal well-being in low-income families. Her research has been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, American Psychological Association, National Head Start Association, and National Institute of Mental Health, and various private foundations.  For more details on Dr. Gassman-Pines' scholarship and biography, please visit her profile pages at the Sanford School of Public Policy or the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience.

Please join us for a USP Seminar with Dr. Christopher Nicchitta, Associate Dean for Research Training in the School of Medicine and the Office of Biomedical Graduate Education and Director of Graduate Studies for the Cell and Molecular Biology Program.  He is currently a Professor in the Department of Cell Biology, with secondary appointments in the Departments of Biochemistry and Pathology, and is a member of the Duke Cancer Institute. Dr. Nicchitta’s research laboratory is focused on understanding how eukaryotic cells compartmentalize and regulate the protein synthesis activities of the cytosol and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) compartments. In this work, they study how cells regulate the partitioning of mRNAs and translation activity (ribosomes and associated regulatory factors) between the cytosol and ER compartments, during homeostasis and cell stress. Recently, the laboratory has expanded their research interests to include flavivirus biology, specifically how these global pathogens localize their genomic RNAs to the ER and usurp the host cell translation machinery for viral replication. For more details on Dr. Nicchitta's research, please see his profile page for the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology or his page for the Department of Biochemistry.  And for more details on his broader biography, please visit his profile…
