Inaugural lecture planned for new department chair

HERSHEY, Pa. -- Penn State College of Medicine is pleased to welcome Donald L. Gill as professor and chair of the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology. Gill has a long and successful history as a cellular physiologist studying the molecular mechanisms of signal transduction.

Gill's research focuses on calcium signaling. His doctoral work at the University of London was followed by training at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the laboratory of Nobel Laureate Martin Rodbell, who coined the term “signal transduction.” Gill’s research has been continuously funded by the NIH for more than 30 years. He has published numerous prominent and highly cited papers and is an internationally recognized leader in calcium signaling.

Attend his inaugural lecture, “The choreography between calcium sensing and signaling… a molecular pas de deux,” at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, in Lecture Room A on the Penn State Hershey campus. Following the lecture, a reception will be held in the back of the cafeteria.
