Dr. Linda G. Jones joined the faculty of Young Harris College in 2009 and teaches human anatomy and physiology, animal physiology, comparative anatomy, developmental biology and various seminar courses. She earned her B.S. in biology from Stetson University, and both her M.A. in biology and Ph.D. in pathology from Vanderbilt University. She completed her postdoctoral studies in pharmacology at the University of California, San Diego. Most of her career has been spent in biomedical research, primarily in cell signaling of the cardiovascular system and more recently in neuroscience. She is now happy to be teaching students in the classroom and as a mentor for student research. One current research model is the zebrafish embryo used for developmental and toxicological studies.
