Gregory G. Brown
Dr. Gregory G. Brown received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Science from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. Following postdoctoral studies at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, he joined the faculty of McGill University, in Montreal, where he is currently a Professor of Biology. For many years his research has focused on using the phenomenon of cytoplasmic male sterility and fertility restoration in plants as a means of exploring the interaction between the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes. In 2003 his group reported the positional cloning of the radish nuclear restorer gene Rfo, one of the first nuclear restorer genes to be characterized.
