Academic Bio

Chris Rodesch, PhD, is the director of the Health Sciences Fluorescence Microscopy Shared Resource, an investigator of the Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI), and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the department of Neurobiology and Anatomy.

Dr. Rodesch provides expertise and equipment necessary to facilitate the use of microscopy in research. The Fluorescence Microscopy (FM) Shared Resource serves members of the HCI laboratory-based scientific Programs (Nuclear Control of Cell Growth and Differentiation, Cell Response and Regulation, and Experimental Therapeutics), enabling them to visualize morphology and behavior, as well as subcellular distribution of molecules, in both normal and cancer cells. The FM Shared Resource enables studies of gene expression, apoptosis, and cell division, allowing enhanced characterization of tumor growth and morphology.

Rodesch received a BS from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, earned his PhD from the University of Iowa, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Utah, where he studied synaptic vesicle dynamics using confocal imaging.
