Joel Goodman

UT Southwestern Medical Center
Professor of Pharmacology, Director of STARS
I direct a research program at UT Southwestern in cell biology. My research interest is organelles, and I'm currently studying the formation of lipid droplets, the organelles that store fat. I teach pharmacology in medical school, specifically antibiotics and chemotherapy. I also direct the STARS (Science Teacher Access to Resources at Southwestern) office at the medical school. At STARS we offer many programs, activities, and resources for life science teachers and students, including summer research, symposia, tours, and help with science fair. In my spare time I play the piano or visit with family; we are expecting our first grandson next month!
