Research: The major focus of Dr. Templeton’s research is trace element biology and toxicology, and current projects address cadmium and iron. Specifically, he is interested in a) the involvement of the calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase, CaMK-II in cadmium-mediated cell survival and apoptosis and b) the ATP-hydrolyzing activity that he has found to be associated with iron regulatory protein 1 (IRP-1), and the consequent links to cellular energy metabolism.
