Faculty Member Brief Research Description
David Antonetti Investigations into the formation and loss of the blood-brain and blood-retinal barrier in normal vascular biology, diabetes and cancer  
Justus Anumonwo Regulation of ion channel expression and assembly in the myocardium.   
Peter Arvan We focus on the molecular mechanisms of protein folding and trafficking in endocrine cells, and diseases of misfolding and mistargeting.   
Daniel Beard Theoretical and experimental analysis of metabolic systems, whole-body cardiovascular mechanics and transport, blood-flow regulation, mechanisms of renal solute transport.  
Jimo Borjigin My lab is interested in (1) melatonin based chronobiology, and (2) neurobiology of the dying brain.  
Steve Britton Evolutionary basis of disease as approached from thermodynamics.  
Charles Burant Using multi 'omics approach, including high throughput metabolomics, we seek to understand the interaction between genetics and nutrients in the development of disease.  
Greg Cartee Effects of exercise, diet (calorie restriction) or aging on regulation of skeletal muscle glucose transport and insulin signaling  
Christin Carter-Su Obesity; neuronal differentiation and function; signal transduction by receptor tyrosine kinases; JAK-Stat signaling in growth, cancer and metabolism; growth hormone signaling and cellular function; tyrosine kinase adapter proteins; diabetes; cell motility   
Eugene CHEN Dr. Chenís research program in cardiovascular medicine is elucidating the molecular basis of diabetes/obesity-induced cardiovascular diseases and stroke.   
Howard Crawford My laboratory studies the cell and molecular mechanisms of the origins of pancreatic cancer, largely using genetically engineered mouse models of the disease. We examine the unique properties of pancreatic epithelial cells, including their inherent plasticity of differentiation, controlled by an array of developmental factors, and how these influence and modify standard oncogene signaling. We also study how chronic inflammation of the pancreas (chronic pancreatitis) contributes to early oncogenesis and cancer progression.  
Sharlene Day Disease mechanisms and regulation of the proteostasis network in cardiomyopathies   
Monica Dus Our lab is interested in how the environment shapes and reprograms brain and behavior, especially in the context of eating. The question we are currently focusing on is: How does sugar change the brain?  
Carol Elias Our studies are focused on deciphering the mechanisms by which metabolic imbalance disrupts the reproductive neuroendocrine axis.   
Patrice Fort Identification (RNAseq and proteomic) and Regulation of intrinsic neuroprotective mechanisms during neurodegenerative diseases (Diabetic Retinopathy and acute injuries) using cell culture, animal models and human tissues - Implication of the IR/Akt/mTOR pathway, crystallin proteins and their post-translational modifications.  
Thomas Gardner We are investigating the metabolic basis of diabetic retinopathy.  
Gary Hammer The long range objective of Dr. Hammer°¶s laboratory is to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which signaling pathways and downstream transcription factors coordinate the specification of adrenocortical cells within the adrenal gland.  
Marc Hershenson rhinovirus-induced exacerbations of chronic airways disease; role of early-life viral infections in the development of asthma  
Susan V Brooks The mechanisms underlying the effects of aging, muscle diseases, injury, and exercise on skeletal muscle structure and function.  
Allen Hsu The genetic, dietary, environmental, and pharmacological factors that influence the rate of aging and longevity using C. elegans as a model organism.
