Jerry W. Reagan, Ph.D.
After completing my bachelor’s degree in Biology at Mars Hill College, Mars Hill, NC, I attended graduate school at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, NC where I received my Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Pathobiology. I conducted my dissertation research on lipoprotein (intravascular cholesterol-transporting particles) metabolism in atherosclerosis-susceptible and -resistant strains of pigeons. I followed my dissertation work at Wake Forest with a postdoctoral fellowship in the Biochemistry department at Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, NH and then returned to Wake Forest for a second postdoctoral fellowship. As a post-doc I continued to study cholesterol metabolism but shifted my focus to intracellular events required for the maintenance of cholesterol homeostasis. I then joined the faculty in the Pathology department at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine and continued my research on intracellular cholesterol metabolism with a focus on cholesterol-mediated regulation of lysosomal enzymes. I joined the Biology department at Middle Tennessee State University in 2005 where I continued my research and fulfilled a long-standing desire to teach at the undergraduate level. Finally in 2012, I joined the Biology Department here at Mississippi College. Although I am not a native Mississippian (I grew up in Florida and North Carolina), I am delighted to be here. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, working in my yard, and spending time with my family.
