<nowiki>Insert non-formatted text here</nowiki>I earned a Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1980 from the Chemistry Department of the University of Montana. After a lengthy prodoctoral stint at Johns Hopkins Unviersity, I was an Assistant Professor in Biochemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Texas. Arlington. While teaching Biochemistry, I developed more than a hobby like interest in using structure viewers as educational tools. I began incorporating the latest developments in my Biochemistry classes. I taught Biological Chemistry, for the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. My students were required to learn how to use a structure viewer and explore properties of proteins using the viewer and other web based tools. Because of budget cuts in the UM system, adjunct faculty were not rehired, so I am on biochemistry teaching hiatus. I hope to teach Biological Chemistry again.
