Ayana Hinton  
Assistant Professor of Biolgy
Denison University
Granville, OH
TEACRS Alumna - 2010





I joined the TEACRS program after completing my PhD in Biochemistry at Wayne State U in Detroit, MI.  As a TEACRS fellow, my research was conducted with Michael Forgac, PhD, Professor of Molecular Physiology & Pharmacology. 

My research focused on elucidating the role of V-ATPases in tumor metastasis.  I demonstrated that particular isoforms of the V-ATPase a subunit play a role in the invasiveness of highly metastatic MB231 human breast cancer cells. 

As part of the TEACRS program, I taught undergraduate Biology at Bunker Hill Community College and Problem-based Learning for Tufts medical students. 

As a faculty member at Denison, I am teaching Eukaryotic Cell Biology and Cell & Molecular Biology.  My research program continues to center on V-ATPase structure and function.
