Developing methods for the analysis of large, high-dimensional and complex data.

Francisco Diaz

Associate Professor of Reproductive Biology
Ovarian physiology. Role of SMAD-mediated signaling in follicular and female germ cell (oocyte) development.

Kateryna Makova

Director of the Center for Medical Genomics; Professor of Biology
Molecular evolution, population genetics, evolutionary genomics, bioinformatics, and human genetics.

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

Director of Graduate Training Initiatives; 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.

David Proctor

Professor of Kinesiology, Physiology, and Medicine
Physiology of aging and exercise; cardiovascular responses to exercise; regulation of skeletal muscle blood flow; skeletal muscle adaptation; vascular adaptation.

Robert Eckhardt

Professor
Genetic and environmental influences on growth and development in human populations.

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

Charles Anderson

Co-Director, Center for Biorenewables; Associate Professor of Biology
In vivo imaging of plant cell wall dynamics. Molecular genetic analysis of genes involved in cell growth. Cell wall biosynthesis in dividing cells. Cell wall engineering for sustainable bioenergy production.

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

Loida Escote-Carlson

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.

Squire Booker

Evan Pugh Professor of Chemistry; Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Elucidating the chemical mechanisms by which enzymes containing iron-sulfur clusters catalyze chemical reactions. Most ongoing projects deal with members of the Radical S-adenosylmethionine Superfamily, a diverse group of enzymes that employ radical chemistry to catalyze transformations involved in post-transcriptional and post-translational modifications, cofactor biosynthesis, secondary metabolite biosynthesis, and enzyme activation.

Raymond Hohl

University Professor of Oncology; Professor of Pharmacology

Gary Thompson

Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education, College of Agricultural Sciences; Director, PA Agricultural Experiment Station

Stephen Benkovic

Evan Pugh University Professor and Eberly Chair in Chemistry
