Faculty Member Brief Research Description
Mara Duncan The molecular mechanisms of membrane traffic, and how it promotes cell survival during stresses including starvation.  
Diane Fingar Regulation and function of signal transduction by mTOR complexes  
Lori L. Isom Role of voltage-gated ion channels in normal development and pathophysiology e.g. epilepsy, ataxia, and arrhythmia. Cellular and molecular neuroscience. Cardiovascular biology. Molecular mechanisms of disease.  
Ajit Joglekar mechanochemical signal transduction, Biophysics of macromolecular protein complexes using in vivo high-resolution fluorescence microscopy, image analysis, and engineered assays.  
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.   
Ann Miller We study the molecular mechanisms that regulate cytokinesis in epithelial cells and how this process may become mis-regulated in cancer.   
Puck Ohi We study mechanisms that govern microtubule organization and remodeling, with a focus on cell division.  
Bishr Omary Our laboratory is involved in two major areas of focus. The first involves studying the regulation, function and disease association of the cytoskeletal intermediate filament proteins that are specifically expressed in digestive-type epithelia. These proteins are termed keratin polypeptides 8, 18, 19 and 20 (K8/K18/K19/K20). The second area of focus involves studying the stress-inducible protein heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) as a potential therapeutic target in acute pancreatitis.   
Akira Ono We study relationships between cellular structures (e.g., membranes and cytoskeletons) and enveloped viruses.  
Carole Parent The Parent laboratory has a long standing interest in understanding the signal transduction mechanisms that regulate cell migration in complex environments.   
David Sept We use computational methods to understand protein-protein and protein-drug interactions.  
Joel Swanson Quantitative fluorescence microscopic methods are used to understand how macrophage cytoplasm is organized to ingest and kill microorganisms.  
Anthony Vecchiarelli How do cells organize their innards? We study how things get to where they have to go inside the cell by reconstituting and imaging self-organizing systems outside of the cell using purified and fluorescent labelled components.  
Kristen Verhey Mechanisms and functions of molecular motors that drive intracellular trafficking along microtubule tracks.   
John Williams How the synthesis and secretion pancreatic digestive enzymes and the growth of the pancreas is regulated to promote digestion.  
Yukiko Yamashita Regulation of asymmetric stem cell division in the context of tissue microenvironment during tissue homeostasis and aging  
Anuska Andjelkovic Molecular mechanism of inflammatory remodeling of Blood brain barrier, Physiology and pathophysiology of tight junction, Blood brain barrier permeability in disease pathogenesis
