Michael J. McCarthy, Ph.D.

Photo of Michael McCarthyLike most people these days, I have worked in a number of different industries over my career. Currently, I am helping professionals with their web presence, internet marketing and brand identity as President of WebPress Creative.

Previously, I was a patent agent at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) in La Jolla, California. I also have law firm experience at Waddey & Patterson, PC, Nashville, TN and at Townsend and Townsend and Crew in their San Diego office. Before doing patent work, I owned a small printing and design house called McCarthy & McCarthy Designs.

I received a B.A. with majors in Biology and Physics from Benedictine College, Atchison, KS. I attended The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine program in Biochemistry, Cellular, and Molecular Biology as a graduate student and completed my studies at Vanderbilt University where I received a Ph.D. from the Department of Biochemistry. I did Post-Doctoral Studies in the Department of Medicine, Division of Endocrinology at Vanderbilt University.
