Kelli Hoover

Professor of Entomology
Invasive species of forest insects; plant-insect-entomopathogen interactions; impacts of plants on pathogenesis; biological control of hemlock woolly adelgid

William Hancock

Professor of Bioengineering
The detailed workings of motor proteins and their role in intracellular transport and cell motility.

B. Tracy Nixon

Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Structural and functional basis of cellulose synthesis. Using Physcomitrella patens and other organisms as model systems, we are learning how plants make cellulose for building new cell wall. The studies use methods of molecular biology and cryoEM to characterize the enzyme as a monomer, and when it assembles into its larger 'Cellulose Synthase Complex '(CSC for short). The aim is to understand cellulose synthesis to explain fundamentals of cell wall biology in plants, and to enable manipulation of its synthesis for applications in fields of bioenergy and materials.

Mary Ann Bruns

Associate Professor of Soil Microbiology and Biogeochemistry
Functional ecology of biogeochemically important microbial populations.

Nigel Deighton

Director of Research Instrumentation
Oversight of Huck facility operations, strategic direction and leadership in programmatic growth, and grant opportunities

Julie Cosmidis

Assistant Professor
Microbial biomineralization with a focus on deciphering the molecular mechanisms involved in the formation of minerals by bacteria, the impact of this process on the geochemical cycles of different element (C, P, S, Fe), and the use of microbial biominerals as biosignatures in the rock record and in astrobiological contexts.

Timothy Meredith

Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Understanding how bacterial cell surface complex lipids are synthesized, to characterize structural modifications in response to varying growth environments, and to uncover how these changes are regulated.

Mauricio Pontes

Assistant Professor of Pathology
