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.
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.
