FACULTY SPOTLIGHT

Aimee Jaramillo-Lambert

Aimee Jaramillo-Lambert, Assistant Professor of Biology, has received a $2 million R35 grant from the National Institutes of Health to study chromosome shape and distribution in meiosis of sperm and eggs. The formation of sperm and eggs with the wrong number of chromosomes, or with misshapen chromosomes, are key contributing factors to infertility, miscarriages, and birth defects in humans.
