Daniel Hayes

Director, Center of Excellence in Industrial Biotechnology; Huck Chair in Nanotherapeutics and Regenerative Medicine; Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Biomaterials engineering for applications ranging from regenerative medicine to lab-on-a-chip technologies. An emphasis on nanomaterials, macromolecules and composite structures. Ongoing efforts include development of optically and magnetically modulated drug delivery systems, quasi 3D cell sheet culture systems, cell encapsulation and delivery materials and hybrid in situ polymerizing grafts/augments.

Suzanne Gonzalez

Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health and of Pharmacology
My laboratory focuses on neuropsychiatric genetics in diverse populations. I am particularly interested in understanding how genetic polymorphisms within key physiological pathways translate into clinical phenotypes of psychiatric disorders, such as bipolar disease and schizophrenia.

Yifei Huang

Assistant Professor of Biology
Developing novel bioinformatic methods and using them to address fundamental questions in evolutionary genomics and medical genomics.

Zachary Szpiech

Assistant Professor of Biology
Population and evolutionary genetics, with applications to medical genetics, anthropology, and conservation

Xiang Zhu

Assistant Professor of Statistics
Statistical Genetics and Genomics

Christian Huber

Assistant Professor of Biology
How evolutionary mechanisms such as mutation, recombination, and natural selection shape genetic diversity and the variability between individuals and species.

Seth Bordenstein

Director of the Microbiome Center; Huck Chair in Microbiome Sciences; Professor of Biology and Entomology
The evolutionary and genetic principles that shape symbiotic interactions between animals, microbes, and viruses and the major applications of these interactions to human health.
