Margherita Cantorna

Emphasis Area Representative, Immunology and Infectious Disease; Director of the Center for Molecular Immunology and Infectious Disease; Distinguished Professor of Molecular Immunology
Understanding the working of the immune system. Utilizing animal models of several human diseases including enteric infections and inflammatory bowel disease to determine the cellular targets and molecular signals by which dietary components regulate immunity.

Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics

Jessica Conway

Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Biology
Viral infection dynamics and interplay with therapies for elimination or control

Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics

Isabella Cattadori

Associate Professor of Biology
Immuno-epidemiology of co-infection, how host immunity modulates parasite interactions and transmission and how host molecular processes explain the dynamics of infection at the population level.

Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics

Sagan Friant

Assistant Professor of Anthropology
Evolutionary anthropology of human health, disease ecology, nutrition, socio-ecological systems, bushmeat hunting, Nigeria.

Jason Rasgon

Professor of Entomology and Disease Epidemiology
Integrating population biology, ecology, molecular tools and theory to address fundamental and applied questions related to vector arthropods and the pathogens they transmit.

Director of the Center for Neural Engineering; Brush Chair Professor of Engineering; Professor of Neurosurgery; Professor of Engineering Science and Mechanics
Neural engineering, neurosurgery, epilepsy, Parkinsons Disease, wave mechanics, brain machine interfaces, EEG, electrical fields, and control theory.

Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics

Nita Bharti

Huck Early Career Professor; Assistant Professor of Biology
The Bharti lab investigates the underlying links between humans, pathogens, and the environment. We work to identify the mechanisms that give rise to heterogeneities in host disease burden and risk across scales, across spatial and temporal scales. We study the dynamics of host-environment interactions that drive movement and contact patterns as they relate to to pathogen transmission and access to health care.

Frank Hillary

Associate Professor of Psychology, Psychiatry and Neurology
Effects of brain injury and disease on functional brain organization; EEG and MRI-based examination of neuroplasticity in healthy and disrupted neural systems, including traumatic brain injury and multiple sclerosis.

Pak Kin Wong

Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Surgery

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.

Professor and Vice Chair for Basic Science Research, Department of Pediatrics; Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and of Pharmacology
Investigate the role of lymphoid master regulator, IKZF1/Ikaros, in the development of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL); other transcriptional factors in leukemia; CK2 activity; chromatin remodeling; super-enhancers.

Mary Kathryn Schmitz

Professor of Epidemiology

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.

Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics

Howie Weiss

Professor of Biology
I am a Biomathematican and very recently moved to Penn State from Georgia Tech (I also had appointments at Emory in Public Health and PBEE). Bacteria and their viruses (phages) provide a way to study ecological and evolutionary processes in real time under the well-controlled laboratory conditions. Many of the questions that our group studies lie at the intersection of fundamental science and improving human and animal health. We develop new approaches to mathematical modeling to better understand the role of the physical structure in how bacteria grow and evolve. To complement this computational work, we work closely with microbiologists, biochemists, virologists, physicians, veterinarians, etc. and combine mathematical models with experiments. In recent years I have taught courses in virus dynamics, population genetics, dynamics and bifurcations, advanced linear algebra, and stochastic processes.
