Dr. Rebecca Parr earned her Ph.D. at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX by characterizing and comparing the spike proteins of two pathotypes of the avian coronavirus, infectious bronchitis virus. Her post-doctoral research experiences are extensive in exploring host-pathogen interactions, viral pathogenesis, and host cell protein interactions that effect cell processes of coronaviruses, baculoviruses and rotaviruses. Her recent research efforts have focused on understanding the mechanisms of action of the rotavirus enterotoxic protein, NSP4 to help design a more effective vaccine. After initiating and directing a Master of Science in Biotechnology Program at Arkansas State University, Jonesboro, AR, Dr. Parr accepted an assistant professorship at Stephen F Austin State University, Nacogdoches, TX, to continue teaching and expanding her research on antiviral strategies using natural products. She has published more than 20 papers in peer reviewed and 2 book chapters.
