Karen L. Hinkle completed her PhD in physiology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and her BS in animal physiology and neuroscience at UC San Diego.

She arrived at Norwich in 2003 and has taught both entry level and upper level courses, including Cell Biology, Physiology, Biology Senior Seminar, Biomedical Techniques, Principles of Biology, Concepts in Human Biology, and Ecology and Geology of the Connecticut River.

She’s had an active research program since her arrival at Norwich, mentoring over 25 undergraduate and high school students in her laboratory, publishing in peer-reviewed journals alongside undergraduate authors, presenting at national and regional conferences, and obtaining over $200K in grant funds. Her work focuses on understanding “molecular switches,” or phosphorylation sites, on proteins involved in normal development but also implicated in cancer.

She and her students actively collaborate with Bryan Ballif, a professor at the University of Vermont.
