Mason Posner


I am a Professor of Biology at Ashland University in Ohio and conduct research with our undergraduate students on protein evolution in the fish ocular lens. We compare lens protein function and structure across multiple species to identify mechanisms of thermal adaptation. We also use the zebrafish to examine the function and expression of lens proteins. I teach courses in a&p, evolution, marine and vertebrate biology and have chaired my Department since 2008.
