Department / University Information


Dr. Stephen K. Herbert researches the stress physiology of photosynthetic organisms. He is especially interested in oxidative stress and the antioxidant systems of chloroplasts and cyanobacteria. The antioxidants of chloroplasts are essential for detoxifying the reactive forms of oxygen that form as a byproduct of photosynthesis. The specific protective roles of superoxide dismutases are the subject of current research. Dr. Herbert earned his Ph.D. with a study of the stress physiology of red algae at the University of Washington, Department of Botany. Following postdoctoral research at the Carnegie Institution's Department of Plant Biology, Dr. Herbert accepted a faculty position at the University of Idaho, where he was assistant and associate professor of Botany. After eight years at Idaho, Dr. Herbert went to the University of Wyoming, where he is now an associate professor in the Department of Botany.
