BIO

Dr. Dwayne A. Hill is currently an Associate Professor at Morgan State University, Baltimore Maryland, in the School of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences. Dr. Hill received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Lincoln University, Pennsylvania. He obtained a Masters Degree in Pharmacology and Toxicology from West Virginia University. He then earned a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Pharmacology and Toxicology from the University of Arizona. Dr. Hill is a member of several national organizations including the American Society of Cell Biology, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), American Association of Immunologists (AAI), Society of Toxicology (SOT), American Chemical Society (ACS).

Dr. Hill's research interests have focused on the involvement of immune effectors in chemically-induced tissue injury, mechanisms of inflammatory cell-mediated cytotoxicity, role of organic extracts in preventing cellular toxicity, effects of environmental pollutants on immune cell function and the development of biosensor technology for toxicological applications. Recently, the Hill Laboratory has initiated studies to develop cyanine biosensors that would label specific transformed cell populations (TCP) and signal immune effectors to respond to the labeled TCPs. His research has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), Department of Energy (DOE).
