Professor Danton H. O'Day's Research

Research by Professor Danton H. O'Day’s group focuses on the roles of calmodulin binding proteins (CaMBPs) in cell function. Most of this work has involved the model eukaryotic microbe Dictyostelium discoideum but ideas generated from that research have more recently been applied to Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. Since becoming Professor Emeritus, he has produced four books and written several blogs on the first artists of Edward FitzGerald’s Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. The current and early work done in his lab are detailed in various sections of this website and on Professor O’Day’s C.V.
