When applying to the Biology CIRCLE Program, please identify at least 3 faculty mentors from this list whose research is of interest to you.
- The study of adaptive multicellular behaviors,
- The study of de novo mutations that forge new interactions,
- And the study of natural interactions between ecologically and clinically linked strains and species.
Lab works in the field of natural products chemistry. Focuses on the discovery of
novel ligands from marine cyanobacteria to elucidate the role of G-protein coupled
receptors in central nervous system function and pain.
