About The Professor

Graham C. Walker is an American biologist, notable for his work explicating the structure and function of proteins involved in DNA repair and mutagenesis, with applications for cancer, and for understanding rhizobium (bacterial) functions that infect plants and mammals.

Graham Walker studies how cells respond to DNA damage as well as the biological interdependence of certain bacteria and plants. He will establish an education group—composed of postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduates—to focus on curricular development, including Web-based materials, for introductory biology.

In addition to his scientific achievements, Walker is coordinating a program at MIT to develop curricular materials in biology.
