Prior to coming to Trenton State College, he returned to Wabash College as an Assistant Professor, where he first taught genetics as well as general biology and electron microscopy. His research interests have involved ultra-structural and molecular genetic studies of oogenesis in Drosophila. He has taught the genetics course as well as the senior capstone seminar course in human and molecular genetics to undergraduate Biology majors for each of the last 33 years. He was the recent recipient of the first annual teaching award given at The College of New Jersey as the faculty member who most challenges students to meet high standards.

Geneticists have long been intrigued as to how several meters of DNA are packed into the eukaryotic nucleus. The discovery of nucleosomes has provided significant insights into this question.
The cover illustration depicts the X-ray crystal structure of the nucleosome core particle at a resolution of 2.8 ÅA. The nucleosome is an integral part of the structure of eukaryotic chromatin. The double-helical ribbon represents 146 base pairs of DNA surrounding four pairs of histone proteins. The nucleosome core particle is repeated over and over in the chromatin fiber and is the principal packaging unit of DNA in the nucleus.
