Bio:

RONALD J. PARRY Dr. Parry was born in los Angeles on June 9, 1942 and received his B.A. degree from Occidental College in 1964. He received his Ph.D. degree in 1968 from Brandeis University. After two years of postdoctoral work in England with Professor A. R. Battersby and one year of postdoctoral work at Stanford with W. S. Johnson, he joined the faculty of Brandeis University in l971. In 1978, he moved to Rice University where is a Professor of Chemistry. Dr. Parry's research interests include the biosynthesis of primary and secondary metabolites and the stereochemical aspects of enzyme mechanisms.
