Angela Morrison (cont.)

These experiences include the Department of Cardiovascular Pharmacology at Pfizer Global Research and Development, where she investigated novel anticoagulants in a canine model of arterial and venous thrombosis. At the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia she developed peptidomics techniques, analogous to proteomics, for studying the peptide components of venom from Great Barrier Reef cone snails. In 2003 she returned from overseas and settled in Denver, where she has been working in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. Her project has been to examine glutamine's protective effects and elucidate its mechanism of action. This research has been very successful and has led to presentations at several international conferences. She will also present at the end of August in Brussels, Belgium where she is the USA's recipient of a Travel Fellowship. These opportunities nicely compliment her love of traveling. She also enjoys hiking, playing tennis, and photography. Here at CSU she will be pursuing a master's degree through the Cellular and Molecular Biology Program with Jeff Wilusz.
