Joseph C. Galley is the Molecular Pharmacology Highlighted Trainee Author for the June 2019 issue. Mr. Galley is a pre-doctoral trainee in the Molecular Pharmacology Training Program at the University of Pittsburgh. His mentor is Dr. Adam C. Straub. The Molecular Pharmacology article that earned his selection as a Highlighted Trainee Author is titled “Antagonism of Forkhead Box Subclass O Transcription Factors Elicits Loss of Soluble Guanylyl Cyclase Expression” and is available at https://doi.org/10.1124/mol.118.115386.
Mr. Galley’s research involves transcription factor mediated gene regulation in the context of smooth muscle function in health and disease. His current research involves the Forkhead box subclass O (FoxO) transcription factors and the role that this family of proteins play in the regulation of the nitric oxide signaling pathway.
