Faculty Interests Research Description

Srdan Acimovic Srdan Acimovic

Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology
The Acimovic lab is located at the Cornell's Hudson Valley Research Laboratory (HVRL), in Highland, NY. learn more

Steven Adie Steven Adie

Biomedical Engineering
Dr. Adie's research program focuses on the development and application of OCT-based imaging for basic science investigations as well as clinical applications. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging modality capable of 3D label-free imaging of tissue structure and function in vivo. learn more

Carolyn Adler Carolyn Adler

Molecular Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine
My lab is interested in understanding animal regeneration. We focus on a highly regenerative animal, planarian flatworms, which can regenerate entire bodies after amputation. Regeneration relies on an active population of adult stem cells. learn more

Anurag Agrawal Anurag Agrawal

Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Ecology and evolution of plant-insect interactions, including aspects of herbivory, community ecology, phenotypic plasticity, coevolution, plant defense and herbivore offense, coevolution. learn more

Beth Ahner Beth Ahner

Biological and Environmental Engineering
Biofuel production from plants and algae, lipid biosynthesis in algae. learn more

Christopher A. Alabi

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Research in the Alabi lab seeks to understand how the composition and sequence of a macromolecular chain affects its chemical, structural and biological properties with an eye towards engineering sustainable materials and biomolecular therapeutics. learn more

Eric Alani Eric Alani

Molecular Biology and Genetics
Highly conserved mismatch repair (MMR) systems have been identified in organisms ranging from bacteria to humans that recognize and repair base pair and small insertion/deletion mismatches that arise as the result of DNA replication errors, DNA damage, and genetic recombination. learn more

Esther Angert Esther Angert

Microbiology
My laboratory studies intestinal symbionts. One group of bacteria of particular interest is the Epulopiscium family. Some of these intestinal symbionts of tropical surgeonfish are among the largest known bacteria, with individuals reaching lengths of 0.6 mm. These cells also reproduce in an unusual manner. learn more

Doug Antczak Doug Antczak

Baker Institute for Animal Health, College of Veterinary Medicine
Genetics and genomics of the horse. Development of the equine placenta. Equine immunology and immunity. learn more

Charles "Chip" Aquadro Charles "Chip" Aquadro

Molecular Biology and Genetics
We study naturally occurring genomic variation in natural populations, focusing on Drosophila populations and species from around the world. learn more

Avery August Avery August

Microbiology and Immunology
We are interested in the role of tyrosine kinases in the regulation of the immune response. We work on the role of intracellular signaling in regulating T cell differentiation and cytokine production, particularly inflammatory cytokines. learn more

Yimon Aye Yimon Aye

Chemistry and Chemical Biology
Chemistry-driven methods development in deconstructing redox-dependent signal transduction; Molecular regulation of redox-responsive therapeutic targets. learn more

Antje Baeumner Antje Baeumner

Biological and Environmental Engineering
Development of biosensors and bioanalytical microsystems and micro total analysis systems for the detection of pathogenic organisms in food, the environment and for clinical diagnostics. Pathogens we focus on include C. parvum, E. coli, Dengue virus, HIV. learn more

Joel Baines Joel Baines

Vet Microbiology and Immunology
Herpes Simplex Virus, Replication, DNA packaging learn more

Daniel Barbash Daniel Barbash

Molecular Biology and Genetics
We are interested in how animals develop, evolve and form new species. We use a variety of techniques including genetics, developmental biology and molecular evolution. Most of our research is done with Drosophila (fruit flies). learn more

Buz Barstow Buz Barstow

Biological and Environmental Engineering
The Barstow lab’s mission is to solve problems in sustainable energy with applied biology. We will develop new tools to understand biology; understand the genetics and physics behind the amazing capabilities that biology brings to energy; and apply all of this to problems in energy. learn more

Gary C. Bergstrom Gary C. Bergstrom

Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology
Biology, population genetics, and epidemiology of diseases of corn, wheat, and bioenergy feedstock grasses. Host resistance, cultural, biological, and chemical disease control strategies as components of integrated crop management of corn, forage legume, small grain cereal, oilseed, and bioenergy feedstock crops. learn more

Rodrigo Bicalho Rodrigo Bicalho

Population Medicine and Diagnostic Sciences
I am an Associate Professor of Dairy Production Medicine in the Department of Population and Diagnostic Sciences. My research interests are diverse and include areas of microbiology, molecular biology, vaccinology, infectious diseases, and immunology. learn more

Karyn Bischoff Karyn Bischoff

Vet Population Medicine and Diagnostic Services
Heavy metals toxicology and trace mineral imbalances are my primary interests in the field of toxicology. Currently, Analytical Toxicology is studying the kinetics of lead in cattle in the field. Lead poisoning is a common problem in cattle and the goal of our research is to prevent lead contamination of meat and milk for human consumption. learn more

Thomas Björkman Thomas Björkman
