Dr. Dimaculangan is a professor of biology. He received his Ph.D. in molecular and cellular biology at the University of South Carolina and completed an National Institutes of Health (NIH) postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pa., prior to joining the faculty at Winthrop in 1994. His research interests while at Winthrop have centered most recently on the molecular mechanisms of cytoplasmic male sterility in tomato plants and the cellular effects of oxidative stress in a 3-D cardiac tissue culture system.

Dimaculangan also serves as the director of Undergraduate Research for Winthrop University, and he is Winthrop’s representative to the National Conference on Undergraduate Research and the Big South Undergraduate Research Symposium.
