Dr. Doba Jackson
Dr. Doba Jackson, a native of Detroit, Mich., arrived at Huntingdon College in the fall of 2006. His specializations are biochemistry and molecular biophysics. Prior to his appointment at the College, Dr. Jackson worked for four years as a postdoctoral research scientist at the Center for Gene Regulation, Pennsylvania State University. During his postdoctoral tenure, Dr. Jackson developed novel crystal forms of macromolecules containing multiple copies of proteins and DNA molecules. In 2003, Dr. Jackson won an NSF-postdoctoral fellowship for crystallization of genomic macromolecular complexes. Dr. Jackson’s other research awards include: a Finn-Wold Travel award from the Protein Society in July 2001, a pre-doctoral fellowship from the Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program in July 2000, and a small research grant from the University of Toledo in 1997.
Dr. Jackson’s main teaching specialty is Organic Chemistry, however he also teaches Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry, and General Chemistry. While in graduate school in 1997, Dr. Jackson won the Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award for the best teaching assistant, nominated by both students and faculty.
Dr. Jackson’s research focuses on understanding the chemical and physical principles of crystallization of macromolecules. The research crosses over several disciplines as biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics.
