Join Dr. Marian Meyers, BC’59 , for a luncheon to discuss her career and college experiences.  Dr. Meyers was an Associate Research Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Department of Cardiology, where she found that the protein sorcin played a role in calcium transport in the heart.  Following this research, she continued her pioneering work in sorcin studies in cardiology departments at Mount Sinai and NYU Medical School.  She was also a Research Scientist at Merck & Co. in Rahway, NJ, and a Research Associate at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, where she did multidrug-resistance studies and discovered the calcium-binding protein she named sorcin.  Dr. Meyers completed her M.S. in Organic Chemistry from University of Maryland, and her Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Graduate Division of Cornell Medical School.
