BUCKHANNON, WV -

Bruce Anthony has joined West Virginia Wesleyan's School of Science as a visiting professor of biochemistry. 

He joins the college from the Indiana University School of Medicine. School officials say his goal is to aid the college in beginning a new biochemistry major and to continue his grant-funded research on alcohol and drug effects on brain plasticity.

Anthony's main research focuses on the effects of alcohol and drugs of abuse on neuronal stem cells, as well as some work in fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. He hopes to bring some of this research to the college and incorporate students in the work.

Students now use a biochemistry lab in the David E. Reemsnyder Research Center, and a cell culture lab is in the works.

While at Indiana University, he spent time as an adjunct chemistry faculty of Harrison College in Northwest Indiana.
