Faculty Interests Research Description

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

Douglas Antczak

Baker Institute for Animal Health
Genetics (Genomics); Reproductive Biology (Placental Development); Immunology, with special reference to the horse; Immunology, Comparative Biomedical Sciences learn more

Nicolas Buchon

Entomology
We use the genetic model Drosophila melanogaster to study host microbe interactions (immunology, microbiology), as well as intestinal physiology. We focus mainly on how gut microbes, pathogenic or indigenous, alter stem cell behavior in the gut. learn more

Jon Cheetham

Clinical Sciences
Dr. Jon Cheetham, Research Scientist and Equine Surgeon at Cornell University, College of Veterinary Medicine and his laboratory team form the Preclinical Upper Airway Lab, which focuses on restoring function in the larynx, nasopharynx and trachea using tissue engineering, reinnervation and functional electrical stimulation techniques. learn more

Soon Hon Cheong

Department of Clinical Sciences/ Section of Theriogenology
Research topics predominantly are related to theriogenology and reproductive biology. learn more

Ben Cosgrove

Biomedical Engineering
The Cosgrove laboratory develops and utilizes systems bioengineering approaches to study the signaling network alterations underlying the decline of stem cell function and tissue regeneration in aging and disease. learn more

Susan Daniel

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Research in the Daniel group focuses on transport and dynamics at biological interfaces and solid surfaces. On the biological side, we are primarily interested in understanding the roles of membrane lipids and protein-lipid interactions on biological function. learn more

Matthew DeLisa

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Our lab is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying protein machinery in the environment of a living cell. We are unique in our ability to probe and exploit the function and specificity of protein machinery by integrating protein engineering with microbial genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology. learn more
