Dr. Evelyn Ralston received a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Free University of Brussels, Belgium and did postdoctoral work at the National Research Council of Canada and at the National Institutes of Health (NCI). She occupied positions in the Department of Molecular biology of the Free University of Brussels and in the Department of Physiology of U.C.S.F. In 2001 she was recruited to NIAMS to start an Imaging Facility. Her scientific research focuses on the study of skeletal muscle subcellular organization, particularly on the role of microtubules and their contribution to muscle disease.
