Aguirre, Adan           Cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating transition of “neural stem cells” into specialized neural cells during normal development. Examine how these mechanisms function in pathological situations when microenvironments are modified.

Berrios, Miguel           Cell Structure and Function: The Cell Biology of DNA Damage and Repair

Bogenhagen, Daniel   BIO 487   T71   Mitochondrial Molecular Biology

Chen, Emily           Breast Cancer Metastasis & Shotgun Proteomics

Colognato, Holly           How glia, which are brain cells that are essential for efficient nerve transmission and optimal brain function, develop from stem cells and specialize, both during development and following injury.

de los, Santos, Carlos           NMR Solution Structure of Nucleic Acids and Proteins

Demple, Bruce    TBD       Trying to understand how cells defend against damaging molecules that are endogenous to cells but also produced by environmental agents

Dickman, Kate           Cancer, DNA Damage Repair 

Eisenberg, Moises           Molecular Modeling of Biomolecules

Frohman, Michael   BIO 487   T74   Regulation of exocytosis, cell shape, and mitochondrial fusion by lipid signaling pathways

Gao, Shujuan           Cell signaling
Garcia-Diaz, Miguel    TBD       Understand the molecular details of different nucleic acid processing pathways. Information is then used to characterize how these pathways are affected by DNA damage and other environmental exposures, and ultimately to understand how alterations in normal nucleic acid biology can result in human disease

Grollman, Arthur           Molecular Carcinogenesis: Mechanisms of DNA Repair and Mutagenesis in Mammalian Cells

Iden, Charles           Investigations of DNA Damage Produced by Genotoxic Substances

Johnson, Francis           Inhibition of HIV-1 (AIDS) Using Rationally Designed Drugs. Effects of Chemical Carcinogens on DNA

Li, Feng-Qian           Function of signaling regulators in cell growth regulation, cancer biology and adipogenesis

Lukin, Mark           DNA Damage Repair

Malbon, Craig   BIO 487   T87   Signal Transduction and Gene Regulation in Differentiation and Development: Roles of Molecular Scaffolds

Moriya, Masaaki           Cellular responses to DNA damage and the mechanism for mutation induction by DNA damage

Prives, Joav   BIO 487   T54   Regulation of Surface Receptors in Muscle Cells

Rosenquist, Thomas           Genetic Analysis of Mammalian Oxidative DNA Damage Repair

Scharer, Orlando           Chemical Biology of Mammalian DNA Repair (CURRENTLY ON SABBATICAL)

Seeliger, Jessica    TBD       Chemical biology of pathogenic bacterial membrane biosynthesis and assembly

Seeliger, Markus 
(home page)
          Examine timescales and pathways of interconversions between active and inactive conformations, how dynamics of structural elements relate to catalytic turnover of the kinase and how drug resistance mutations affect these dynamics

Takemaru, Ken-Ichi           Wnt Signaling in Development and Disease. Chibby Family Members and Ciliogenesis

Talmage, David    TBD       Signal transduction. How one pair of molecules, Nrg1 and ErbB4, interact to regulate synapse formation and maintenance

Tsirka, Styliani-Anna           Neuro-immune interactions in physiology and pathology of central nervous system

Watson, Robert           Insulin-stimulated translocation of the GLUT4 glucose transporter
