 Dr. Scott Briggs
 Dr. Clint Chapple  
 Dr. Jim Forney  
  • Project: Analysis of proteins required for genome reorganization in ciliated protozoa. Current investigations are focused on SUMOylation, a posttranslational modification that occurs in all eukaryotic organisms.
  • Starting: spring or summer 
  • Required Skills: Successful research requires someone who is not afraid to make mistakes and is not discouraged easily. There are no specific course requirements, but students should be willing to learn new information that helps them understand their project. Looking for sophomores or juniors (possibly freshmen).

 Dr. Fred Gimble  
 Dr. Barbara Golden  
 Dr. Humaira Gowher  
 Dr. Mark Hall  
  • Project: The Hall lab is trying to understand how the complex events that lead to correct cell division are regulated and coordinated with each other using the simple single-cell model organism budding yeast. Current areas of focus include DNA repair, chromosome segregation, and cytokinesis.
  • Starting: Fall or Spring
  • Required Skills: Sophomore or Junior year would be ideal but will consider freshmen and seniors if necessary.

 Dr. Ann Kirchmaier  
  • Project: Potential projects vary - involve epigenetic gene regulation, chromatin modifications, DNA damage & repair, DNA replication, sister chromatid cohesion.
  • Starting: spring
  • Required Skills: Prefer highly motivated, meticulous sophomore or junior willing to commit a minimum of 1 year to the project. Must be eligible for work study or enroll in a minimum of 2 (preferably 3) credits research each semester.
