Profiles in "Gene Regulation" Expertise Area

  • Rawls is an associate professor of genomics, evolution and bioinformatics in the School of Life Sciences and executive director of clinical partnerships in the Office of the University Provost.
  • Dr. Newbern's research is centered on developmental neuroscience. His laboratory studies the biochemical mechanisms that direct the formation of the brain and spinal cord.
  • We are interested in how salient life experiences, such as stress and psychedelic-assisted therapy, can alter epigenetic regulation of gene systems involved in mental health. *Actively recruiting a PhD student for Fall22.
  • Dr. Mastroeni's current research is examining genetic ( Mom & Dad) and epigenetic (environmental) changes within single classes of cells in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease by laser capture microdissection (LCM).
  • Studying gene regulation in the genomes of the Paramecium aurelia species complex. Using bioinformatic, cell biological , proteomic, and transcriptomic techniques.
  • Shepherd directs the Quantitative Imaging and Inference (QI2) lab. The QI2 lab works at the interface of advanced imaging, single-molecule biophysics, image analysis, genetic regulation and developmental biology.
