Dr. Peter Reiser's Research is Published in the Journal of Experimental Biology

Dr. Peter Reiser holds dual appointments as a professor of oral biology in the College of Dentistry, and as a professor of physiology and cell biology in the College of Medicine. Reiser's decades of research have included projects that examine various species' craniofacial (head and face) muscles, jaw muscles, and the proteins or “myosin” that comprise these muscles that allow mammals to consume and chew their food.

Dr. Reiser’s research has been published in an array of academic journals, including the American Journal of Physiology, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and the Journal of Clinical Investigation. His most recent publication is in the Journal of Experimental Biology, a leading international journal that publishes interdisciplinary research on the form and function of living organisms at all levels of biological organization, from the molecular and subcellular to the integrated whole animal.

The April 2011 edition of the journal, which features Dr. Reiser's article, Patterns of Tropomyosin and Troponin-T Isoform Expression in Jaw-closing Muscles of Mammals and Reptiles that Express Masticatory Myosin, also includes publications that examine the nanoscale physiology of millimeter-scale animals, and the analytic theories of allometric scaling.
