Dr. Richard Schwartz received his BS in Biological Sciences from the University of California at Irvine, and his PhD in Biochemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he studied antibody gene expression. He continued his training with postdoctoral studies in the molecular biology of RNA processing at the University of California, San Diego and at the California Institute of Technology, and then postdoctoral studies at the University of California at Los Angeles on the genesis of B-cell lymphomas. He came to Michigan State University in 1986 and is currently a Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics and Associate Dean for Graduate Studies in the College of Natural Science. At Michigan State University, his research activities have been in the areas of B cell oncogenesis, regulation of pro-inflammatory cytokines, and, currently, the role of diet and inflammatory processes in mammary gland development and tumorigenesis.
