Education: Ph.D., University of Rochester (Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology); M.S., University of Rochester (Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology); B.S., Grove City College (Biology)
Teaching and Research Interests: Developmental biology, cell biology, molecular biology, microbiology, genetics. Currently, I am interested in the role of the cytoskeleton during development of the nematode worm, Caenorhabditis elegans. I am studying tubulin proteins (which make up microbubules) that are specifically expressed in the intestine of the worms. I look at worms that are mutant for particular tubulin genes to see what goes wrong in their absence to try to understand what these tubulins are doing normally in the intestines of the worms.

Teaching and Research Interests: Plant biology, including pollination, plant responses to the environment, and best practices for propagating plants; medicinal and cultural use of plants; using plants to remove toxicants from the environment; the neurobiology of learning and its application in the classroom; and horticultural therapy.

Research: My multidisciplinary research in environmental quality and remediation focuses on cleaning up nature using its own means. We develop natural techniques such as bioremediation (using microbes) and phytoremediation (using plants) to remediate soil and water pollution. Ongoing projects: Investigate the potential of eutrophication of Lake Ontario (evident in massive algal bloom in summer). Develop sustainable techniques to reduce the Great Lakes’ eutrophication potential, to clean up lead-contaminated backyards, and to clean up bisphenol A (BPA). I train undergraduates to think like independent researchers, using cutting-edge research skills and a deep understanding of research goals, hypotheses, and future applicability.

Teaching and Research Interests: Bioinformatics: computer analysis of DNA and protein sequences; computerized image analysis: three-dimensional microscopy of cells.
Education: Ph.D. Biology, University of South Florida; M.S. Zoology, University of South Florida; B.A. Biology with a minor in secondary education, Adelphi University
Teaching and Research Interests: Amphibian/reptilian physiological ecology; vertebrate anatomy. Specifically, I am interested in digestive physiology, including macronutrient absorption efficiencies, the metabolic cots associated with digestion, and chitinolytic enzyme systems. I am also interested in thermal physiology, energetics (especially metabolism), and anti predator mechanisms of reptiles and amphibians.
Education: Ph.D., Integrative Biosciences, The Pennsylvania State University; B.S., Biology, Duquesne University
Teaching and Research Interests: Toxicology, microbiology, cell and molecular biology, scientific communication, online education. My current research focuses on bioremediation -- exploiting the natural metabolic capabilities of plants and bacteria to degrade pollutants in our environment.
Education: B.Sc., University of Guelph, Major: Microbiology
Research Assistance: Help students with the purchasing of chemicals, supplies, and equipment that they need for their research; finding equipment and space to work, as well as train in techniques or on equipment and act as a consultant for microbiology isolations, culturing, and testing.

Education: D.C., Life University School of Chiropractic; B.S., State University of New York at Buffalo
Education: B.S. Biology, SUNY Geneseo; B.S. Health Sciences and M.S. Physical Therapy, Nazareth College; Ph.D. Physical Therapy, SUNY Upstate Medical University; board certified clinical specialist in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS); certified kinesiotaping practitioner by the Kinesiotaping Association of America.
Teaching and Research Interests: Human gross anatomy, pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, pharmacology, musculoskeletal management.
Education: Ph.D Zoology., University of Colorado; B.S. Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, University of Michigan
Teaching and Research Interests: Developmental biology, cell biology, and evolution. Current research involves determining the triggers for processes like gastrulation and tissue differentiation and using medaka fish (whose embryos are clear for viewing the entire developmental time period until a fish hatches from the egg) to study proteins associated with the developing embryos at various stages and after certain chemical treatments.
