Kenneth A. Taylor
Florida State University
Professor Kenneth A. Taylor received his Ph.D. degree in Biophysics in 1975 from the University of California at Berkeley. His Ph.D. research demonstrated the feasibility of obtaining high resolution image data from unstained protein crystals embedded in ice. He then spent 4 years at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, England where he learned 3-D image reconstruction and started a 48 year career working on muscle structure and function. There followed a research faculty appointment in the Anatomy Department at Duke University Medical Center and then in 1995 a faculty appointment at Florida State University where he is currently employed.
