Short Biography:
Dr. Richard Steet received his B.A. in Biochemistry in 1994 from Colgate University and his Ph.D from the University of Colorado-Boulder in 2000. Prior to his Assistant Professor position at the University of Georgia, Dr. Steet was a Postdoctoral Fellow (2001-2005) and Instructor of Medicine (2005-2006) in the Department of Internal Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine.

Research Interests:
The importance of protein glycosylation in human development has been underscored by the emergence of a group of inherited disorders known as the congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG). Using both cell biological and biochemical approaches, our laboratory seeks to identify and characterize novel forms of these disorders with particular interest in CDGs that arise from defects in proteins that support overall Golgi function (i.e. proteins involved in vesicular trafficking events). Utilizing zebrafish as a vertebrate model organism, we are also interested in studying the craniofacial pathogenesis of lysosomal storage diseases and related genetic disorders. The goal is to delineate the cellular and molecular events that lead to the developmental defects in these patients.
