Dr. Gary Fisher holds an endowed Professorship of Molecular Dermatology at the University of Michigan. He is also Director of the Photobiology and Aging Research Laboratory.
Dr. Fisher research studies the molecular mechanisms of sun-induced premature skin aging and the molecular mechanisms of chronological skin aging. Additional current interests include regulation of signal transduction pathways by protein tyrosine phosphatases, and extracellular matrix biology related to stem cells, inflammation, and cancer in aging human skin.
He received his PhD from Cornell University and postdoctoral training at Washington University in the Departments of Biological Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine.
