Yali Dou, Ph.D.
Our broad objectives are to understand the mechanism of how chromatin regulatory events regulate gene expression and thus affect different biological pathways. The current lab focus is on one of the histone H3 lysine 4 methyltransferases MLL (mixed lineage leukemia protein) and its interacting partners.
Yasmina Laouar, Ph.D.
The overall long-term goal of our laboratory is to understand the mechanisms of immunosuppression at the interface between innate and adaptive immunity.
Cheng-Yu Lee, Ph.D.
My long-term goal is identify many signaling pathways expressed in both insect and vertebrate neural stem cells, and contribute to our understanding of neural stem cells in birth defects, regenerative medicine and cancer biology.
Michael Sutton, Ph.D.
My lab studies the molecular mechanisms that control synapse development and plasticity in the mammalian hippocampus.
Christiane Wobus, Ph.D.
My laboratory studies the mechanisms of norovirus – host cell interaction both in vitro andin vivo. We use a combination of cell culture and mouse models to better understand the biology of these highly prevalent pathogens and develop approaches for prevention and control.
Haoxing Xu, Ph.D.
We use an integrative approach with state-of-art techniques including molecular biology, bioinformatics, biochemistry, immunochemistry, electrophysiology, fluorescence imaging, spinning-disk confocal microscopy, and mouse genetics. Currently our research is mainly focused on : 1) ion channels in the lysosome, and 2) TRP channels in the skin.
