Joseph M. Chalovich

Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

  • B.S., Pennsylvania State University, 1974
  • M.S., Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1976
  • Ph.D., University of Illinois, 1978

Joseph M. Chalovich was born in Pittsburgh, PA and attended St. Boniface grade school and North Catholic High School. His higher education was at the Pennsylvania State University (B.S.), Virginia Polytechnic Institute (M.S.) and University of Illinois School of Medicine (Ph.D., 1978). His Ph.D. was obtained in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Bárány. His postdoctoral training was done in the laboratory of Dr. Evan Eisenberg at the National Institutes of Health. There he studied the mechanism of regulation of muscle contraction by the actin binding complex of tropomyosin and troponin. He moved to East Carolina University in 1984 where he continued to study mechanisms of regulation of smooth, skeletal and cardiac muscles using biochemical and biophysical approaches. He also studies the protein fesselin (synaptopodin 2) and its role in organizing actin and myosin. He is currently a Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at East Carolina University.
