Professor and College of Medicine Distinguished Senior Scholar

Melissa Rolls

Chair, Intercollege Graduate Degree Program in Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Biosciences; Co-Director of the Center for Cellular Dynamics; Paul Berg Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Subcellular compartmentalization of neurons. The cellular basis of neuronal polarity and neuronal responses to injury including degeneration and regeneration.

Fang (Rose) Zhu

Assistant Professor of Entomology
Understanding the mechanisms and evolution of insects’ adaptation to chemical stresses in their environment.

Pamela Giblin

Professor of Immunology
The role of receptor tyrosine kinases in normal physiology and disease progression; the downstream signals that mediate these responses in vivo and in vitro.

Scott Selleck

Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Wansheng Liu

Professor of Genomics
Functional annotation of farm animal genomes, structure and function of mammalian sex (X and Y) chromosome, spermatogenesis and male fertility.

Donna Korzick

Chair, Intercollege Graduate Degree Program in Integrative and Biomedical Physiology; Professor of Physiology and Kinesiology
My research is focused on aging, post-menopausal women, and cardiac ischemia reperfusion injury using animal models. We are particularly interested in the effects of estrogen deficiency on mitochondrial regulation of cell survival following myocardial infarction. Multiple levels of inquiry addressing mitochondrial quality control regulation and immune signaling is emphasized.

Colin Barnstable

Professor and Chair of Neural Behavioral Sciences
How interacting networks of transcription factors and signal transduction molecules guide the development of precursor/stem cells into mature neurons. Role of these networks in neurodegenerative diseases. Factors that can act as neuroprotective agents.

John Wills

Distinguished Professor of Microbiology and Immunology

Fumiko Kawasaki

Associate Research Professor
Genetic and Molecular Studies of Neural Function and Degeneration

Gregory Yochum

Assoc. Professor, Biochemistry

Gustavo Nader

Associate Professor of Kinesiology
Skeletal muscle growth control and adaptations to exercise. Ribosome biogenesis, transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of RNA Polymerase I.

Erin Connolly

Professor and Head of Plant Science
Molecular mechanisms of micronutrient transport. Iron uptake and compartmentalization. Metal ion homeostasis

Loida Escote-Carlson

Director, Master of Biotechnology Degree Program; Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

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.
