Principal Investigator

Pamela Hall, PhD

Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences

PHall@salud.unm.edu

Pamela R. Hall received her B.S. degree in Microbiology in 1989 and her M.S in Molecular Biology from the University of Alabama in 1999. She earned her Ph.D in Pharmacology from Case Western Reserve University in 2004. Dr. Hall worked as a Post-doctoral Fellow in the Department of Biochemistry at Case Western Reserve University from 2004-2005 focusing on structural studies of the transcarboxylase enzyme complex. In 2005, she was a Post-doctoral Fellow at the National Institute of Health working on structural recognition of pathogenic ligands by TLRs. From 2006-2008, Dr. Hall was a Post-doctoral Fellow at the University of New Mexico Health Science Center focusing on peptide and small molecule inhibitors of Hantavirus infection as well as the innate immune response to Hantavirus infection. She worked as a research scientist and trained under Dr. Hattie Gresham from 2009-2011 focusing on host defense against infectious disease, before being appointed as Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of New Mexico.
