  • B.S., Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas University), 1989
  • M.S., Texas State University, 1991
  • Ph.D., University of Texas at Austin, 1995

After obtaining his Ph.D., Timothy Raabe, Ph.D., joined the laboratory of Dr. George H. DeVries at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago and began investigating the role of growth factors (molecules that influence glial cell development) to determine the feasibility of using certain growth factors as possible therapeutic agents for certain diseases affecting the nervous system such as multiple sclerosis or diabetic neuropathy. Raabe’s work focused on a family of growth factors termed neuregulins. The neuregulins are very important for the development of not only oligodendrocytes, but also Schwann cells which are responsible for myelination in the peripheral nervous system. His research focuses on the ability of both oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells to produce their own neuregulins which may enable these cells to regulate their own survival, differentiation, or proliferation.

Raabe joined the faculty at St. Mary’s University in 1997 and was named Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences in 2009. Raabe is also the first Benjamin F. Biaggini Endowed Chair of Biological Sciences at St. Mary’s University. He was appointed the first Associate Dean of the School of Science, Engineering, and Technology.

Chem and Biochem, University of Texas at Austin. Post-doctoral fellow at Rice University. Ph.D. University of Texas at Austin 1993. MS Texas State 1989.

Dr. Christodoulides holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, a Masters in Science degree in Biology from Texas State University, San Marcos, and a Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Immunology from the University of Texas at Austin. As a graduate student at Texas State University and UT Austin, he was trained in immunoassay development with a specialization in polyclonal and antibody production methodologies, respectively. He completed his post-doctoral training at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston where he studied the effects of vascular cell-derived carbon monoxide on platelet function. As a Research Associate at Rice University, he continued to research cardiovascular patho-biology with emphasis on shear stress-induced platelet signaling and aggregation.

He joined the McDevitt Lab at UT Austin as a senior scientist in 2000. He currently serves as the Assay Development and Implementation Director for the bio-nano-chip project at the McDevitt Laboratory at the BioScience Research Collaborative at Rice University. Since he joined the group, he has directed the development and validation of more than 30 lab-on-a-chip assays, including the ultrasensitive test for C-reactive protein, as well as multiplexed assays for cardiovascular disease (risk assessment, diagnosis and prognosis of acute myocardial infarction), allergy testing, tests for drugs of abuse, toxin detection and serum to saliva contamination tests.
