Rick Dobrowsky

I started my research program on the role of lipid rafts as compartments for signaling via neurotrophin receptors. As changes in neurotrophin signaling are known to contribute to nerve degeneration in diabetic neuropathy, we extended our work to diabetic animal and cell culture models, which is the current thrust in the lab.

Jackob Moskovitz
Associate Professor

The specific aims of my research are designed to determine how the Msr system affects the function and expression of other proteins as well as to evaluate the role of methionine oxidation in the progression of oxidative stress and age related diseases.

Professor, Chair of Pharmacology and Toxicology

The most rewarding aspect of my job is mentoring young scientists. I have enjoyed mentoring a dozen Ph.D. graduate students and numerous post-doctoral fellows.

Eduardo Rosa-Molinar

My research focuses on the development and application of tools and workflows for multi-scale multi-modal correlated volume microscopies and three-dimensional volume reconstruction to unravel synaptic geometry.

Honglian Shi
Associate Professor

I received a Ph.D. in biophysics with a specialization in oxidative stress research and have been conducting research in the field of oxidative stress since my graduation.

Adam Smith
Assistant Professor

My research focuses on the neurobiological substrates of social behavior and stress.

Jaichandar Subramanian
Assistant Professor
Malott Hall, Room 5060

Dr. Subramanian received his PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Southern California. He completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the National Institutes of Health and a position as a Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During his postdoctoral research, he used in vitro and in vivo imaging technologies to understand mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in mouse cortical neurons.

Dr. Subramanian’s research focuses primarily on synaptic plasticity associated with learning and memory and their dysfunction in mouse models of neurodegenerative disorders. His lab utilizes state of the art approaches, such as single neuron genetic manipulations, in vivo synaptic labeling and multi-color two photon imaging.

James Tracy
Malott Hall, Room 2040

My research has focused on the metabolism of xenobiotics in invertebrates and the biochemical mechanisms of anthelmintic action and resistance.

Liqin Zhao
Associate Professor

Our research focuses on brain aging and neurodegeneration (with an emphasis on Alzheimer’s disease; AD).
