District Chief James E.

To collaborate with Colleges and Universities in Tennessee, seeking students who are interested in finding cures toward research of terminally, chronic, or environmentally influenced diseases or dysfunctions to employ a research approach that incorporates clinical and basic mechanistic studies to address disease etiology, pathogenesis, susceptibility, progression, & prognosis.
