Faculty Interests Research Description

Erica Behling-Kelly

Clinical Pathology
My laboratory currently focuses on determining the pathogenic potential and diagnostic utility of serum lipoproteins in domestic species. 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

Richard Cerione

Vet Molecular Medicine and Chemistry & Chem Biology
Mechanisms of receptor-coupled signal transduction; the actions of cellular polypeptide growth factor receptors learn more

Ruth Collins

Molecular Medicine
Cell and Molecular Medicine. Structure, function and mechanisms of action for proteins regulating cell growth, and the disease impact on human and animal health when these proteins are dysfunctional. learn more

Scott Coonrod

Baker Institute for Animal Health
See webpage for full description. 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

Kelly Hume

Clinical Sciences
My research focuses on understanding how DNA damage response mechanisms influence tumorigenesis and chemosensitivity. learn more

Amnon Koren

Molecular Biology and Genetics
Genomics of human DNA replication timing and mutagenesis. We integrate experimental and computational biology to study how the human genome replicates, how replication timing varies among people and in genetic diseases and cancer, and how replication timing affects the mutational landscape of the genome. learn more

Jan Lammerding

Biomedical Engineering
The research in the Lammerding Lab is focused on developing and applying novel experimental techniques to explore the interplay between cellular structure and function, with a particular emphasis on the cell nucleus and the nuclear envelope. learn more

Sergiy Libert

Biomedical Sciences
My laboratory uses a diverse range of techniques to study the process of aging. learn more

Angela McCleary-Wheeler

Clinical Sciences
My laboratory studies the role of Hedgehog signaling and epigenetic pathways involved in modulating this signaling pathway in cancer. learn more

Andrew Miller

Biomedical Sciences; Section of Anatomic Pathology
My laboratory is focused primarily on studying the mechanisms underlying neurologic disease in companion animals utilizing both spontaneously arising disease models and experimental models in a variety of laboratory animal species. learn more

Nozomi Nishimura

Biomedical Engineering
We are part of the Schaffer-Nishimura Lab in Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University. How do the vascular, immune, inflammatory systems interact with an organ in diseases? learn more

Shu-Bing Qian

Nutritional Sciences
Most of the research work in Dr. Qian's laboratory is broadly interdisciplinary, with a primary emphasis on the nutrient signaling pathway, stress response, protein synthesis, and their implications in human diseases. learn more

Chris Schaffer

Biomedical Engineering
My lab develops and uses advanced optical techniques to observe and manipulate in vivo biological systems, with the goal of constructing a microscopic-scale understanding of normal and disease-state physiological processes in the central nervous system. learn more

John Schimenti

Vet Biomedical Sciences
cancer genetics; mechanisms of genome maintenance in mice; mammalian meiosis; functional genomics learn more

Marcus Smolka

Molecular Biology and Genetics
Our research is focused on the DNA damage checkpoint, an evolutionary conserved signaling pathway that functions to protect genomic integrity. We are particularly interested in understanding how dysfunctions in the DNA damage checkpoint kinases lead to genomic instability and, consequently, cancer. learn more

Tracy Stokol

Vet Population Medicine and Diagnostic Services
Links between hemostasis and cancer and inflammation, such as that due to virus infection, cancer metastasis, biomarkers for cancer detection. learn more

Gerlinde Van de Walle

Baker Institute for Animal Health
Studies on the pathogenesis of alphaherpesviruses, using natural host model systems. Studies on the role of mammary stem cells (MaSC) in mammary cancer. Studies on the biological properties of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) learn more

Robert Weiss

Vet Biomedical Sciences
Genome maintenance mechanisms; DNA damage responses; mouse models of cancer. learn more

Mingming Wu

Biological and Environmental Engineering
My lab aims at understanding the physical principals that living systems operate, in particular, through their interactions with fluids. The questions we address are motivated by contemporary problems in health and environment. learn more

Andrew Yen

Vet Biomedical Sciences
Cancer cell and molecular biology; regulation of the cell cycle and differentiation by retinoids, carcinogens, oncogenes, and tumor suppressor genes. learn more

Haiyuan Yu

Biological Statistics and Computational Biology
We do research in the broad area of Biomedical Systems Biology with both high-throughput experimental and integrative computational methodologies, aiming to understand gene functions and their relationships within complex molecular networks and how perturbations to such systems may lead to various human diseases. learn more
