Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr. Lemmon is a cell biologist whose research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of membrane traffic in the endocytic/endosomal system. She received her BA at University of Rochester and her PhD from Washington University.  She did postdoctoral training with Elizabeth Jones at Carnegie Mellon Univ.  From 1988-2003 Dr. Lemmon was a faculty member in the Dept. of Molecular Biology & Microbiology at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU).  In 2003 she was recruited to the Univ. of Miami Miller School of Medicine (UMMSM), where she is currently Professor of Molecular & Cellular Pharmacology. Dr. Lemmon is also Director of the MD-PhD Program (Medical Scientist Training Program/MSTP) at UMMSM.
