About Kevin Pruitt

Kevin Pruitt received a BS degree in Chemical Engineering from University of Texas at Austin followed by post-baccalaureate research training in the biological sciences at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. He then moved on to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, for doctoral studies in Pharmacology in 2001 followed by postdoctoral training at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Dr. Pruitt has received numerous research awards during his career, serves as a member of National Cancer Institute study sections, and directs a vibrant research program where graduate students and postdoctoral trainees contribute to the discovery process in basic and translational cancer research. He joined the Physiology Department as an assistant professor at LSUHSC in Shreveport, Louisiana in 2006. He was then recruited to the Department of Immunology & Molecular Microbiology at TTUHSC in Lubbock, Texas in 2014 where his group continues to focus on identifying novel factors that contribute to colon and breast tumor progression.
