Cartwright is a geneticist who develops computational and statistical methodologies to explore evolutionary questions.
Collins is an evolutionary ecologist whose research group studies the role of host-pathogen interactions in species decline and extinction, as well as ecological ethics.
Fewell is a President’s Professor and faculty leader for the Organismal, Integrative and Systems Biology Group. Her research centers around the organization and evolution of insect societies.
Rebecca Fisher's primary appointment is at the UA COM-Phoenix, where she designed the anatomy curriculum. Fisher studies the functional anatomy and evolution of the musculoskeletal system in vertebrates and cephalopods.
Franz is an insect systematist who specializes in New World weevil diversity and evolution. He curates the Hasbrouck Insect Collection and directs the Biodiversity Knowledge Integration Center (BioKIC) and ASU Biocollections.
Gile is an evolutionary microbiologist who studies single-celled eukaryotes (protists) and symbiosis.
The Harris lab uses genetic, molecular and imaging techniques to explore the genetics that underlie regeneration, and how we can improve the ability to repair and re-grow tissues after they're damaged.
Haynes' group uses synthetic, systems, and quantitative biology to engineer useful gene and protein-based biological devices and to deepen understanding of molecular cell biology.
Hill began his education in molecular genetics but switched to evolutionary anthropology in 1980. He has held faculty positions at Emory University, University of Michigan, University of New Mexico, and A.S.U
Hinde investigates the food, medicine, and signal of mother's milk and impact on babies at the intersection of social, life, and medical sciences.
Silvie Huijben is an evolutionary biologist who studies the evolutionary ecology of resistant organisms. Her aim is to optimize treatment strategies that minimize resistance evolution, with a focus on malaria.
Prof. Jensen and his lab develop population genetic theory and statistical methodology for describing and quantifying evolutionary processes in both natural and experimental populations.
Kanthaswamy’s research on primate genetics and genomics is centered on the investigation of anthropogenic and natural forces which shape and structure genetic variation of natural and captive animal populations.
Kimbel is director of the Institute of Human Origins. He conducts field, laboratory and theoretical research in paleoanthropology, with a primary focus on Plio-Pleistocene hominid evolution in Africa.
Associate dean for research and online in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and interim director of the School of Life Sciences. Kusumi's research focuses on vertebrate genomics.
Laubichler is a theoretical biologist and historian of science. He is director of the Global Biosocial Complexity Initiative at ASU and the ASU-SFI Center for Biosocial Complex Systems
Maley is a biologist who specializes in cancer, evolution and computational biology. He works at the intersection of these fields.
Marean’s research interests focus on the origins of modern humans, the prehistory of Africa, the study of animal bones from archaeological sites and climates and environments of the past.
Martins studies behavioral evolution by mapping the ancient history of lizard communication in the southwestern US and by studying how sensory systems impact social behavior in the biomedically-important zebrafish.
Dr. Nesse is a physician who has dedicated his career to establishing evolutionary biology as a basic science for medicine.
Susanne Pfeifer is a computational evolutionary biologist who studies genetic and evolutionary processes by combining large-scale, high-throughput sequence data analysis, model-based statistical inference, and modeling.
Pigg is a paleobotanist who studies fossil plants that are related to modern groups of conifers, ferns and woody hardwood trees. Her group studies the origin of plants of the temperate deciduous biome.
Pratt studies the emergence of complex behavior in leaderless groups, especially social insects. He works with engineers to translate lessons from biology to artificial systems, and to develop new tools to analyze behavior.
Rabeling is an evolutionary biologist who studies the speciation mechanisms and biological diversity of ants, as well as the evolutionary ecology of symbiotic interactions between ants and other organisms.
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.
Reed's research uses community ecology of primates and mammals to understand biogeography, community structure, and the habitats of fossil hominins.
