Belmont University | Belief in Something Greater

Robert Grammer, Ph.D.


I have taught at Belmont University since 1985. My fields of interest within biology are the cellular and molecular basis of biological processes. I received a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Georgia and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Vanderbilt University. Following completion of my Ph.D., I did postdoctoral research in the Department of Biochemistry in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where I studied hormonal systems of blood pressure control, including renin and atrial natriuretic peptide.

I teach courses in introductory biology, molecular biology, cell biology, and research techniques. I currently lead students in undergraduate research projects on stimulus-response in C. elegans, a soil-dwelling nematode.

My principal interests outside of academics revolve around my family, wife Linda, son Scott and his wife Meghan, daughter Adrian, and grandson Cade. I am an active member of First Baptist Church, Nashville.

I would like to contact Dr. Grammer.
