Dr. Kretzner joined the staff of the Department of Urology in January of 2000, with a joint appointment in Cell and Tumor Biology. He is a native of Michigan, where he received a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. He recieved his PhD in Molecular Biology from Brandeis University and was, until recently, an Assistant Professor of Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion SD. While in South Dakota he became interested in the tumor biology of prostate cancer and his work since 1999 has been in this area. He works closely with Dr. Smith and with Dr. Crocitto on telomerase as a diagnostic tool in Expressed Prostatic Secretion. He hopes to establish his laboratory research around that project and the expression and characterization of proteins that interact with the telomerase system.
