A cross-disciplinary foundation in biological science, while allowing students the flexibility to choose their own path of inquiry.
I study how admixture and population history shape the genetic risk for neurodegenerative diseases.
We study the genetic basis of developmental robustness and plasticity using nematode C. elegans as a model system.
We use light-switchable molecules to control and engineer natural cell behaviors.
Studies the role of septins in collective border cell migration in the Drosophila ovary.
Genetics of neural development and behavior in the nematode C. elegans.
I use electrophysiological techniques to understand and quantify interactions in neuronal networks.
Although the Graduate Division ceremony has been canceled, we look forward to celebrating in person with these accomplished scientists in the future. Congratulations and best wishes to all.
Dissecting how macrophages count and measure to design new cancer therapies.
We are interested in a simple question: how does a cell build a peroxisome? I use genetic and microscopy tools to answer questions about protein quality control mechanisms within the cell.
