Eric Cooper

Eric is a molecular and cellular biologist who is currently interested in a couple of different areas of research.  He has had a long-standing interest in the enzymes comprising the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway, which is the system in cells for controlling the timely degradation of specific proteins.  He is also developing a project aimed at understanding regulation of enzymes relevant to a rare neurological disease called Lesch-Nyhan syndrome.  He teaches several courses, including Molecular Biology of the Cell, Immunology, and Concepts in Biology.  Outside of class and lab, he enjoys baseball, hiking, cooking, and keeping up with his two young children.  He arrived at Hartwick in 2011.
