Kennon M. Garrett Ph.D.
- Associate Professor of Physiology
- Assistant Director, Office of Intellectual Property Management
- Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychiatry
- Adjunct Associate Professor, College of Pharmacy
- Molecular mechanisms of drugs acting at the GABAA receptor.
- Novel anxiolytic and antidepressant drugs.
- Commercialization of discoveries made in University laboratories.
- Ph.D. in Pharmacology, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
- Postdoctoral training: University of California at San Francisco, University of Illinois Health Sciences Center at Chicago.
My primary focus is teaching electrophysiology and endocrine physiology. I also teach the process of commercializing technologies developed in academic institutions. This includes topics on patenting inventions and evaluating the market potential of discoveries.
