Faculty Member Brief Research Description
Cora MacAlister Our focus is on understanding the contribution of cell wall glycoproteins to plant growth and development in several species.  
Ormond MacDougald My lab focuses on understanding regulatory mechanisms for adipocyte differentiation and metabolism, including by microRNAs.  
Janine Maddock The Maddock studies (1) mechanisms of protein localization and (2) how the largest cellular macromolecular machine, the ribosome, assembles.  
Ivan Maillard We are interested in the regulation of hematopoietic stem cell homeostasis, the biology of Notch signaling and T cell immunology.  
Sami Malek We study the genomic pathogenesis of leukemias and lymphomas  
Peter Mancuso Research in the Mancuso lab currently includes the following projects: 1) Impact of obesity on in innate immunity and host defense against bacterial pneumonia; 2) Effects of drugs that increase the life span on innate immunity in aged mice; 3) We are also exploring the role of the adipokines (hormones produced by fat cells) in chronic disease in the Study of Women Across the Nation. 4)   
Yang Mao-Draayer We are investigating potential therapeutic agents for treating multiple sclerosis using neural progenitor cell (NPC) and immune cell culture systems; and subsequently in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). We are investigating the mechanisms by which leukocyte subsets and cytokines interact with NPCs. We are interested in the effects of various T cells (Th1, Th17, Th2, Treg) and B cells on CNS progenitor cells and axonal regrowth pathways that could affect attempts to repair damaged CNS tissues during inflammatory demyelination. We correlate bioassays of novel compounds in vitro and in EAE with well-characterized cohorts of patients' studies. Our long-term goal is to apply novel neuroprotective therapeutic agents in human clinical trials for MS patients.  
Ben Margolis Our laboratory studies epithelial cell polarity and cilia formation.  
David Markovitz Our laboratory studies the interaction between human cellular factors and retroviruses, and their role in oncogenesis and immuity.  
Neil Marsh Enzyme mechanisms, protein engineering and antimicrobial peptide design  
Eric Martens Symbiotic degradation and metabolism of complex carbohydrates by bacteria that inhabit the human distal gut  
Donna Martin We study the genetic basis of neural development and its relation to disorders of human brain and nervous system development.   
George Mashour My primary interest is in the mechanisms, measurement, and monitoring of consciousness.  
Jon Maybaum Use of cell cycle checkpoint inhibitors to improve the therapeutic effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation in cancer treatment   
Melvin McInnis Genetics of bipolar disorder, genetics of major depression, longitudinal outcomes and translational research in mood disorders.  
Jens-Christian Meiners We study the role of mechanics in fundamental biological processes on the molecular level. Currently, we are mostly interested in how DNA moves in living cells to accomplish its biological functions.  
Miriam Meisler Molecular basis of neurological disease, mouse and human genetics, epilepsy, motor neuron disease; sodium channel function.  
Chris Mendias Cellular and molecular biology of skeletal muscle and connective tissue adaptation to mechanical loading, injury and disease  
Ram Menon The major research emphasis of our laboratory is to understand the role of the growth hormone (GH) / growth hormone receptor (GHR) axis in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy.   
Sofia Merajver Molecular genetics of aggressive breast cancer phenotypes and comparative studies and integrated modeling.
