Dr. Marchant received training in leading laboratories that provided him with biochemical, molecular and imaging skill sets to probe the functional architecture of cell signaling events. As an independent principal investigator at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Marchant’s interests diversified to utilize these skill sets to advance a variety of projects in cellular and regenerative biology. He has been the recipient of more than a dozen grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), as well as numerous research awards and seed grants from the University of Minnesota.
He has been significantly involved in undergraduate, medical, graduate and postdoctoral education. He has mentored over 30 PhD, MS, Undergrad students and Postdoctoral Fellows. Dr. Marchant has also served on over 20 thesis committees in the past decade.
Dr. Marchant has published more than 80 articles, original papers, book chapters and reviews, and presented at nearly 20 local, regional, national and international lectures and workshops during the past five years. He has served as a panelist on numerous NSF and NIH Study Sections and as an ad hoc reviewer for national and international journals and granting bodies.
