Dr. Wito Richter recently was appointed assistant professor in the department of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine.
Dr. Richter earned his doctorate degree in biochemistry from Leipzig University in Leipzig, Germany, and subsequently joined the lab of Dr. Marco Conti in the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Stanford University for a post-doctoral fellowship.
Before his appointment to USA, he served as assistant adjunct professor in the department of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of California San Francisco in San Francisco, Calif.
Dr. Richter’s primary research interest lies in understanding the role of cAMP-phosphodiesterases (PDEs), a large group of isoenzymes that hydrolyze and inactivate the second messenger cAMP, in the temporal and spatial control of cAMP signals. He is particularly interested in probing the physiological and pathophysiological functions of individual PDE subtypes and the therapeutic potential of their activation or inhibition.
