Faculty Interests Research Description

Joel Baines

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

Elizabeth Buckles

Vet Biomedical Sciences
Diseases of birds and wildlife. 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

Stewart Gray

Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology
My research program focuses on understanding the relationships between plant viruses and their insect vectors. Specifically we work on luteoviruses and their aphid vectors. Research projects range from the mechanisms of aphid-virus interactions to epidemiology and disease management strategies. learn more

Sondra Lazarowitz

Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology
Cell and molecular biology of virus-host interactions: Viral determinants of pathogenicity and host range; mechanism of virus cell-to-cell and systemic movement; regulation of nuclear export. learn more

John Parker

Baker Institute for Animal Health
Our team is broadly focused on understanding how animal viruses overcome natural cellular defenses to achieve efficient replication. We use a variety of viruses, but our work is focused on mammalian orthoreoviruses and feline caliciviruses.

Colin Parrish

Baker Institute for Animal Health
Studies of viral host ranges, examining the emergence of the host variants of parvoviruses and influenza viruses. learn more

Keith Perry

Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology
Plant viruses, how they are transmitted by insect vectors, the molecular genetics and protein structure of the viral determinants of vector transmission; Plant virus disease diagnostic technologies, array-based methods for virus detection and discovery; We operate a potato seed production program for NY growers. 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
