Philip A. Rea

Biography

Philip A. Rea is professor of biology at the University of Pennsylvania and Rebecka and Arie Belldegrun Distinguished Director of the Roy and Diana Vagelos Program in Life Sciences and Management (LSM), which is a joint effort between Penn’s School of Arts and Sciences and the Wharton School. He earned a D.Phil. in plant biochemistry from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. As a plant biochemist, his primary research is on energy-dependent transport across membranes and heavy-metal detoxification. In his capacity as an LSM director, he is concerned with the interface between the life sciences and their realization through case studies that highlight the difficult transition from discovery in the laboratory to implementation. He is the author of more than 100 papers, and was awarded the President’s Medal of the Society for Experimental Biology for his fundamental research, as well as several awards for his teaching.
