Ph.D., Biochemistry & Biophysics, 2016, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX


Dr. Shoup received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Biophysics from Texas A&M University in 2016 for characterizing the intricacies of protein aggregate disassembly by molecular chaperones using a combination of novel single particle and ensemble fluorescence-based techniques. Using a combination of immunoassays and fluorescence-based techniques, his current research focuses on uncovering how interactions between cellular machinery and infectious prions alters both cellular physiology and the properties of infectious prions. His work not only provides a deeper insight into prion behavior in cellular environments but also provides a better understanding of the cellular mechanisms involved in other neurodegenerative diseases.
