Brief Bio:
Dr. Gore Panter is a 2014 graduate of the Molecular Medicine PhD program of CWRU. Her dissertation focused on Genetic and Functional Studies associated with Atrial Fibrillation. She was interested in determining whether AF-associated SNPs in the chromosome 4q25 region had an effect on expression of PITX2c or PANCR, a novel gene in the region. During her post-doctoral training at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Gore Panter continued to study AF and cardiovascular molecular genetics and electrophysiology. More specifically she studied how a mutation in an individuals genetics might affect their risk for atrial fibrillation and recently sudden cardiac death.
Up to that point, there had been very few teaching opportunities available, however she felt this was an avenue she wished to explore. In Fall 2014, she joined CSU as a part-time instructor teaching primarily non-majors Biology. Dr. Gore Panter uncovered a great passion for teaching, especially teaching non-majors. She truly believes that you don't have to be a scientist to learn science, to like science, or to have a basic understanding of science!  Her hope is that when students leave her class they will feel like they learned some worthwhile information, that they are less afraid of science and that they will gain an appreciation of how awesome and amazing our bodies are and what they do every day to keep us healthy and in a state of HOMEOSTASIS without us having to think about it!
