Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research interests are to elucidate the contribution of chromatin to mechanisms that promote genomic integrity.
Rudy J. and Daphne Donohue Munzer Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor of Molecular and Cellular Physiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research objectives are to understand the cellular mechanisms involved in the development and maintenance of epithelial cell polarity. Polarized epithelial cells play fundamental roles in the ontogeny and function of a variety of tissues and organs.
Kevin and Michelle Douglas Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Evolution of genomes and population genomics of adaptation and variation
Professor of Genetics and of Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in a broad range of problems at the interface of genomics and evolutionary biology. One current focus of the lab is in understanding how genetic variation impacts gene regulation and complex traits. We also have long-term interests in using genetic data to learn about population structure, history and adaptation, especially in humans.

John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn Professor and Professor of Neurology and of Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Neuron death, stress, gene therapy
MD Student with Scholarly Concentration in Clinical Research, expected graduation Spring 2016
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interests and experience are in epidemiology as it relates to:
1) Population health, with a particular focus on chronic diseases and aging globally.
2) Translational medicine and medical devices, with experience in drug development for neglected tropical diseases.
I am additionally interested in international exchange and health diplomacy.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goal of research in the Shatz Laboratory is to discover how brain circuits are tuned up by experience during critical periods of development both before and after birth by elucidating cellular and molecular mechanisms that transform early fetal and neonatal brain circuits into mature connections. To discover mechanistic underpinnings of circuit tuning, the lab has conducted functional screens for genes regulated by neural activity and studied their function for vision, learning and memory.
Professor of Biology and of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The connectivity of a neuron (its unique constellation of synaptic inputs and outputs) is essential for its function. Neuronal connections are made with exquisite accuracy between specific types of neurons. How each neuron finds its synaptic partners has been a central question in developmental neurobiology. We utilize the relatively simple nervous system of nematode C. elegans, to search for molecules that can specify synaptic connections and understand the molecular mechanisms of synaptic as
Associate Professor of Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests A central aim of the burgeoning field of systems biology is to understand the principles governing genetic control networks. I believe finding the principles underlying genetic circuits will occur through detailed studies and then comparisons of several natural systems. Due to its extensive development as an experimental system, our favorite model, the budding yeast cell cycle, is poised to become central to this enterprise.
