Professor, Organismal Biology and Anatomy
The Schmidt-Ott lab uses experimental and genomic approaches to study the evolution of embryogenesis in flies, including midges and mosquitoes (Diptera). We seek to...
Professor, Pediatrics
This program has evolved from the basic biochemistry and enzymology of glycoconjugate structurem function, and synthesis to the study of glycoconjugates in cartilage...
Professor, Organismal Biology and Anatomy
I seek to understand the mechanisms behind the evolutionary origin of new anatomical features and faunas. The philosophy that underlies all of my empirical work is...
Associate Professor, Ben May Department of Cancer Research
Given their pivotal role in tissue homeostasis and regenerative medicine, somatic/adult stem cells are of tremendous interest to both biomedical research field and the...
Assistant Professor, Human Genetics
How our brain is developed and evolved remains a major question in biology, and abnormal development of the human brain can cause autism, epilepsy and intellectual...
