    Bullard, Daniel, Professor (P) 2008 -

    Dr. Bullard received his undergraduate degree in zoology from Iowa State University and his Ph.D. in genetics from Case Western Reserve University. During his postdoctoral studies in the Department of Human and Molecular Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, he initiated research investigating the role of leukocyte/endothelial cell adhesion molecules in inflammatory processes. He joined the Department of Genetics at UAB in 1996.

    Crowley Ph.D., Michael, Associate Professor (P) 2008 -

    My undergraduate was completed at Ball State University in Muncie Indiana. Upon graduating I was recruited and worked as a technician in the laboratory of Dr. Roger Reeves at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and eventually went to Eli Lilly in Indianapolis, IN before going to Grad School. My graduate work was done with Dr. Bonnie Asch at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY. After graduating I did a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Rosa Serra at the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati O...

    Edmonds Ph.D., Micky, Assistant Professor (P) 2016 -

    The overall goal of my research is to determine the genetic and epigenetic events that drive epithelial cancer progression and metastasis. Cancer is the second leading cause of mortality in the United States. The genes required for cancer progression and dissemination remain an area of active investigation. The main research focus of my lab is to understand how non-coding RNA regulate these processes and, specifically, the functional role of microRNA (miRNA). miRNAs are small, non-coding RNA mol...

    Marquez-Lago Ph.D., Tatiana, Associate Professor (P) 2018 -

    Research in the Marquez-Lago lab combines (wet lab) experiments involving bioengineering, micro- and molecular biology techniques, with (drylab) data analysis, AI, modeling and simulation techniques. In a nutshell, we investigate (1) host-microbiota interactions in complex human diseases, (2) microbial multi-drug resistance, and (3) gene expression and chromatin organization. In addition, we study (4) the role and effect of mechanical forces ('mechanobiology') and cell compartmentalization in pa...
