Dave Bridges

I am ab Assistant Professor currently working at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, in Memphis, Tennessee. I was born in Pickering, Ontario, Canada and moved to Calgary, Alberta, Canada where I attended Bishop Carroll High School and the University of Calgary.

I completed a Bachelor's of Science in Biochemistry in the Department of Biological Sciences of the University of Calgary. During this time, I had my first laboratory experience as an undergraduate thesis student with Dr. David Waisman.

I did my doctoral work in Biochemistry in Dr. Greg Moorhead's Laboratory in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Calgary in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Greg is an expert in protein phosphorylation, especially protein serine/threonine phosphatases. During this time I worked on the identification and characterization of several protein phosphatases in mammalian cells.

From 2005 to 2013, I was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Dr. Alan Saltiel's Laboratory at the Life Sciences Institute of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In 2013 I joined the faculty of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Our lab webpage is available at bridgeslab.uthsc.edu.
