Brown, Dennis, PhD
Dennis Brown is a Ph. D. cell biologist who specializes in the use of state-of-the art fluorescence imaging and electron microscopy techniques to follow and dissect physiologically-relevant membrane protein trafficking events in epithelial and non-epithelial cells. He serves as the Associate Director of the CSB and the Director of the MGH Program in Membrane Biology (PMB) which uses use state of the art technologies in the pursuit of important biological questions at the system level. He became Professor of Medicine at Harvard in 2001 and has been at MGH since 1985.
