This faculty group focuses research and education on empirical, experimental, computational and theoretical studies of the patterns and processes that shape the diversity of genomes and their products.
Dr. Anderson is a tumor biologist who studies how the immune system can be harnessed to detect and alter cancer development.
Buetow is a human genetics and genomics researcher who leverages computational tools to understand complex traits such as cancer, liver disease, and obesity.
Cadillo-Quiroz studies how microbes participate in ecosystem and applied processes.
Cartwright is a geneticist who develops computational and statistical methodologies to explore evolutionary questions.
Chang is an immunologist who studies the development and function of the immune system and uses DNA nanostructure to design and construct more useful vaccines and immunotherapeutic agents.
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).
Garcia-Pichel is the dean of natural sciences for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. He studies the roles, adaptations and impacts of microbes in natural environments, from desert soils to shallow marine waters.
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.
Phil Hedrick is a population geneticist and conservation biologist who studies genetic variation in populations, including how genetics can impact the survival of rare and endangered species.
Jensen and his lab develop population genetic theory and statistical methodology for describing and quantifying evolutionary processes in both natural and experimental populations.
Associate dean of research, online, and graduate initiatives for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Kusumi's research uses genomic approaches to address major biomedical and conservation challenges.
Lake is a cellular and molecular immunologist who is working on biologic inhibitors of tumor cell metastasis. He is also developing a new test for Valley Fever that provides a diagnosis for patients with acute disease.
Mangone is interested in study how eukaryotic RNA transcription is terminated and how the messenger RNA is regulated on its way to the expression into proteins, using the wound worm C. elegans as model system.
Newbern's research is centered on developmental neuroscience. His laboratory studies the biochemical mechanisms that direct the formation of the brain and spinal cord.
Oddo focuses his research on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying memory deficits in Alzheimer’s disease.
Pfeifer, a computational molecular biologist, studies genetic and evolutionary processes by combining large-scale, high-throughput sequence data analysis, model-based statistical inference, and modeling.
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.
Taylor is a theoretical population geneticist who uses mathematical models to explore evolutionary processes. He is also interested in the biology of soil mites in the Madrean sky islands of Arizona and Sonora.
Varsani is a molecular virologist who works across ecosystems from plants to animals and from the tropics to polar regions.
Vermaas and his team conduct basic and applied research on cyanobacteria, a group of photosynthetic microbes, using these organisms as a chassis to produce useful compounds (biofuels, green chemicals) from sunlight and CO2.
Wang is an applied microbiologist, working at the interface between microbial genetics and metabolic engineering to develop new microbial production processes.
Wilson Sayres is a computational evolutionary biologist studying sex-biased processes including human and non-human health and disease.
Wilson-Rawls' research focuses on understanding the regulation of cell fate during development and regeneration with an emphasis on skeletal muscle stem cells and gametogenesis.
Martin Wojciechowski is an evolutionary biologist who studies plants, with an emphasis on the genomics, biogeography, and phylogenetics of legumes (family Leguminosae) and cacti (family Cactaceae).
