Meri Krevosky joined the faculty of Bridgewater State University in the Fall of 2002. Her research interests focus on the study of programmed cell death, or apoptosis, of cancer cells. Cancer cells often acquire genetic mutations or express proteins that prevent cell death following therapeutic intervention (chemotherapy, irradiation). Therefore, the study of the mechanisms that underlie resistance to cell death may lead to the identification of novel targets for the treatment of cancer. Additional interests include the study of programmed cell death in ocular disorders to better understand how small heat shock proteins may prevent retinal cell death in retinoblastoma, destructive endophthalmitis and age-related macular degeneration. Dr. Krevosky’s primary teaching responsibilities include Anatomy and Physiology, Animal Physiology, and Cancer Biology. She enjoys mentoring students in cellular and molecular biology research and sharing with them the excitement of biological discovery.
