Chatting with Dr. Christopher Arnette – Owner of The Cocoa Cake Shop

Chatting with Dr. Christopher Arnette – Owner of The Cocoa Cake Shop
A coastal Georgia native, Christopher Arnette was always interested in the way in which the body works. From the chemical reactions that provided the necessary energy for life, to the way in which cells interacted to function precisely, Christopher knew that a career in science was his career path. Following graduation from high school, Christopher attended Prairie View A&M University where he majored in Biology, with minors in Chemistry and Spanish. He went on to attend Vanderbilt University where he obtained his PhD in Cell and Developmental Biology. His thesis focused on cell signaling, specifically microtubule-associated protein, RASSF1A, and how it stabilized microtubules to allow for cytoskeletal crosstalk for delivery of Src during cell migration and in cancer. He went on to complete a postdoctoral fellowship at Northwestern University where he studied the cell signaling cascade initiated by loss of epidermal cadherin, desmoglein 1, and the subsequent effects on the epidermal environment, focusing on the development of a pre-melanoma niche. After his postdoctoral fellowship, Christopher worked as a scientific editor, managing a variety of journals and began an online bakery, specializing in cakes, breads, and pies. Following the events in Michigan (George Floyd) and due to the the COVID-19 pandemic, Christopher began taking a more active role in diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives within the corporate space. He sat on various DEI committees and authored the company’s “Considerations for Inclusive Events” guidelines. He has since used his experience to obtain a new position as IMOD Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at a science and technology center based at the University of Washington. One of his initiatives utilizes his baking skills to bring communities from various identities together to discuss the issues that face them, as well as providing perspectives on different issues in DEI. As a result of this, he is also opening a new online bakery, The Cocoa Cake Shop, to provide his treats to a wider audience.@Dr_Khaos, Thecocoacakeshop This program is brought to you by:Balanced Virtually Be sure to visit BizRadio.US to discover hundreds more engaging conversations, local events and more.
