Lischinsky, Julieta

May 25, 2024

Innate social behaviors, including aggression and mating, are crucial for survival and propagation and are therefore shared across species. In the Lischinsky lab we aim to elucidate the developmental, cellular and circuit underpinnings for social behaviors and how these mechanisms … Read more

Chung, Kay

March 7, 2024

The Chung lab is engineering immune cells, particularly T cells, to achieve maximum therapeutic efficacy at the right place and timing. We explore the crossroads of synthetic biology, immunology, and cancer biology. Particularly, we are employing protein engineering, next-gen sequencing, … Read more

Peng, Aimin

February 27, 2024

Our overarching goal is to delineate how cells respond to cancer therapeutics that induce DNA damage, and, accordingly, to develop new strategies that overcome treatment resistance in cancer, including head and neck cancer. To achieve this goal, we study new … Read more

Cho, Rae

February 14, 2024

We study proteases that induce rapid changes in cell morphology, behavior, and identity. We are particularly interested in ones that play a role in myotube formation, muscular dystrophies, rhabdomyosarcoma, and cachexia. Our model systems include C2C12 cells, primary myoblasts, patient-derived … Read more

Chen, Jiakun

February 12, 2024

The goal of our research is to understand how astrocytes develop and how they interact with neural elements during nervous system formation, function, and maintenance. Our lab uses fruit fly Drosophila and zebrafish Danio rerio to explore fundamental aspects of … Read more

Corteselli, Elizabeth
