Randy Allen

Research in my lab is focused on understanding the transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression during plant development and in response to environmental stresses such as drought and extreme temperatures.

Estela Arrese

Storage and mobilization of triacylglycerol stores in the fat body of insects. 

Patricia Canaan

The Canaan lab uses advanced technologies and genomics approaches including metagenomic, proteomic and molecular biology approaches, genome sequence analysis, RNAseq analysis, and various bioinformatics tools to study a variety of biological problems including study of antibiotic resistance in Elizabethkingia.

Charles Chen

Quantitative and computational approaches to understand the dynamics and significance of genetic, environmental and evolutionary forces that shape the complexity of biological diversity. 

Yong Cheng

We are studying host-pathogen interactions during mycobacterial infections, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Non-tuberculous Mycobacteria.  

Junpeng Deng

In my lab, we are using structural biology to unveil molecular mechanisms of key proteins involved in biological processes, infectious diseases, inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases and cancer.

Feng Feng

The Feng lab is working on plant-microbe interactions to understand how and why plants make the decision to engage with pathogenic and symbiotic microbes in response to the diverse environmental conditions.

John E. Gustafson

Mechanisms of antimicrobial-resistance and -reduced susceptibility in bacterial pathogens

Steve Hartson

Dr. Hartson uses proteomics and bioinformatics to study mechanisms of action of novel anti-cancer compounds.

Peter Hoyt

The Hoyt lab uses bioinformatics and genomics approaches to understanding influence of genome structure and evolution on microbial phenotypes.

Xia Lei

Metabolic regulation of secreted proteins in obesity and diabetes

Robert Matts

Structural, proteomic and biochemical approaches to study the mechanism of action of the Hsp90 chaperone machine, discovery of novel inhibitors acting on the machine  and the determination of the physiological consequences of its inhibition in cancer.

Rita Miller

Studies the regulation of mitosis and microtubules by the post-translational modification  of microtubules-associated proteins (MAPS)

Ellie Phoung D. Nguyen

My research investigates the molecular interactions between Arabidopsis plants and Spodoptera exigua generalists to understand plant enhanced resistance to herbivores and cannibalism effects.

Patricia Rayas-Duarte

Dr. Rayas’ lab studies physicochemical and functional properties of cereal grain components with the objective to increase the understanding of the relationship of cereal proteins, their properties under flow and deformation regimes and performance in specific processes and baked products and their shelf life. Her team explores the structures formed by protein components and probe possible explanations of their interactions with key components in specific matrices such as dough or baked products.

Don Ruhl

Regulation of chromatin structure and epigenetic inheritance

Jose Luis Soulages

Storage and mobilization of triacylglycerol stores in the fat body of insects. 

Ramanjulu Sunkar

We study transcriptional and posttranscriptional gene regulation that underlie plant stress tolerance mechanisms

Kevin Wilson

We are studying how bacteria respond to antibiotics, particularly their ribosomes, to become resistant superbugs.
