Research Summary

Dr. Mary Gamble's research focuses on nutritional biochemistry at both basic and applied levels. Her earlier work on retinoid metabolism included studies on proteins involved in retinoid transport and in the generation of transcriptionally active retinoic acid metabolites. Dr. Gamble's international research began with studies on vitamin A deficiency in the Republic of the Marshall Islands and in Brazil. Presently, she focuses primarily on nutrient/environment interactions, with her latest project determining nutritional influences on arsenic toxicity.
