Gillian Small is a molecular and cellular biologist who studies the signaling pathways involved in the regulation of proteins involved in lipid metabolism. Her laboratory uses the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model system to study the complex regulation of genes whose products are involved in lipid utilization or metabolism. Key among the proteins studied are peroxisomal enzymes that are highly inducible when yeast is grown on a fatty acid carbon source. Dr. Small is also the University Dean for Research in the CUNY Office of Academic Affairs.
