Research Specialties

Biochemistry and Cell Biology

This research ranges from molecular interactions, protein folding and membrane biophysics to development of organ systems and whole animals.

Cancer Biology

Research involves all aspects of cancer biology and numerous scientific approaches, including nanotechnology, stem cell research and genomics.


Epidemiology is the study of health and disease in a population and the underlying factors that lead to these conditions, with a goal of preventing the spread and/or future incidents of illness.

Infection and Immunity

A detailed understanding of how infectious agents invade and propagate within host organisms and how in turn hosts defend themselves against such infection is crucial for development of new vaccines and treatments for infectious disease.

Medical Genetics and Genomics

Researchers hope to use the genetic discoveries for early intervention, stem cell treatment, selective breeding, and application to human disease.


Scientists use molecular, cellular, and organismal approaches to study these and other questions in order to understand how the nervous system is able to accomplish its many functions.

Reproductive Biology

Research of reproductive biology encompasses a host of different species (from mice and human beings to cattle and horses), examining both male and female reproductive function and fertility at the systems, endocrine, gonadal, genetic, and molecular levels.

Stem Cell Biology

Stem cell research has a promise of developing new treatments of injuries and diseases, including neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases and cancer. 

Wildlife Conservation

The survival of threatened and endangered species requires innovative and integrative ideas and approaches to wildlife conservation.
