Dr. Moore is an integrative systems biologist working at the interface between behavior, neuroscience, physiology and ecology. He is interested in the reproductive biology of vertebrates, especially the neuroendocrine control of reproductive behavior and aggression. Learn More

Faculty Profile

The overall theme of the research in my lab is detecting the effects of natural selection on nuclear genes. This includes detecting the effects of balancing selection and directional selection on variation within populations, variation among populations, and variation among species, and it includes a mix of empirical and theoretical work. Learn More

Faculty Profile

Current research is directed toward studies of epithelial ion and organic substrate transport. Primary cell cultures and established cell lines of renal and intestinal epithelia are used to investigate hormonal and dietary control of transport processes. Learn More

Faculty Profile

My lab uses systems-based approaches and animal models for the identification and functional elucidation of genes involved in organ development and disease. We have developed a bioinformatics-based approach termed iSyTE, and have successfully used it to identify novel cataract genes and predict several uncharacterized genes with potential function in lens development.  Learn More

Faculty Profile

Dr. Kirn-Safran is best known for her work on the study of the terminal differentiation of progenitor cells into cells producing an organized mineralized extracellular matrix (ECM) during murine embryonic development. This area of research includes the study of the mechanisms of cartilage, bone, and tooth development.   Learn More

Faculty Profile

I am testing new investigations for the Introductory Biology I and II laboratories in the areas of statistical analysis, bioinformatics, cladistics, evolution, and ecology.   Learn More

Faculty Profile

Teaching Introductory Biology I and II, combined problem based learning with traditional methods. Learn More

Faculty Profile

The focus of my laboratory has been the study of migrating cells, both normal and abnormal, in the developing brain. In my laboratory we have uncovered basic mechanisms of normal vertebrate brain development, explored and established new in vivo models of human disease, and developed new in vitro technology that has been employed for the study of both.  Learn More

Faculty Profile

My laboratory focuses on understanding the transcriptional control of cell differentiation in the lens and the role of integrins and extracellular matrix proteins in regulating normal lens biology and their alterations in cataracts and PCO.  Learn More

Faculty Profile

Teaching Introductory Biology I and II, combined problem based learning with traditional methods. Learn More

Faculty Profile

The identification of genes and mechanisms that are involved in sperm dysfunction and male factor infertility/subfertility is the focus of our laboratory. Learn More

Faculty Profile

Research interests include Vibrio parahaemolyticus an emerging human pathogen, Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of the dreaded diarrheal disease cholera, and Vibrio vulnificus a marine bacterium and opportunistic pathogen of humans.  Learn More

Faculty Profile

The objective of my research is to identify the CAMs expressed on HBME cells inclusive of the respective ligands or counter-receptors found on prostate cancer cells that are involved in prostate cancer cell-HBME interaction.  Learn More

Faculty Profile

I currently conduct research in close association with Dr. David Usher at the University of Delaware and Dr. Daniel Rader at the University of Pennsylvania. This research focuses on lipoprotein function in humans and other vertebrates.
