The dynamics of neural systems, how group dynamics form or emerge from the coupled dynamics of individual units, and how to measure and interact with these systems.
Associate Director of the Neuroscience Institute; Huck Distinguished Associate Professor of Neural Engineering and Neurosurgery
Role of blood flow and cerebrospinal fluid movement in the development of neurodegenerative diseases, control of cerebral blood flow, neurovascular coupling.
Professor of Bioengineering
Fundamental molecular mechanisms by which vascular endothelial cells sense the forces from flowing blood and transduce this mechanical information into adjustments of cell and tissue biology.
Assistant Professor of Pedology
Soil formation and biogeochemistry due to land use and ecosystem change; soil and water degradation, and the remediation of soil physical and chemical properties in urban environments.
Associate Professor of Bioengineering
Understanding the fundamental mechanisms by which biomaterial interfaces alter the proliferation, migration and differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells, and application of these principles in the intelligent design of biomaterial scaffolds that facilitate generation or regeneration of musculoskeletal tissues
Assistant Professor of Chemistry; Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Paul Berg Early Career Professorship in the Eberly College of Science
Developing chemical tools to monitor cellular stresses that influence protein folding in real time. Deciphering how the energy landscapes associated with proper protein folding and function are regulated by the cellular folding environment. Examining how this regulation leads to significant biological consequences.
Assistant Professor of Chemistry
Biochemistry and chemical biology to uncover and understand new metal and redox biology. We are particularly interested in applications to infectious disease, bioenergy, and cancer biology.
Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The mechanisms by which bacteria sense and respond to the environment, as well as how these signaling proteins/pathways affect competition, host colonization, and pathogenesis.
Huck Chair of Metabolic Physiology; Associate Professor of Nutritional Sciences
Utilizing rodent models to discover novel neural substrates that control fundamental homeostatic and reward controls of food intake, and their failures in the case of obesity and infection-induced anorexia; How food and feeding behavior affect neural circuits controlling sociability and emotionality.
