Using large-sample osteohistology to assess growth dynamics, individual variability, and survivorship in dinosaurs and other extinct vertebrates, while utilizing the bone microstructure of extant vertebrates
to provide a framework for paleohistologic inferences.

Kathleen Curtis, Ph.D.
Estrogen effects on the central control of body fluid balance

J. Thomas Curtis, Ph.D.
Environmental influences in an animal model of autism

Franklin R. Champlin, Ph.D.
Cell envelope physiology and antibiotic resistance of gram-negative bacterial pathogens

Randall L. Davis, Ph.D.
Neuroinflammation in CNS disease and infection; and neuroimmune-opioid interactions

Paul Gignac, Ph.D.
Musculoskeletal and dental biomechanics, cranial evolution and paleobiology of feeding in crocodilians and theropod dinosaurs, and contrast-enhanced micro-CT imaging techniques.

Anil Kaul, M.D., D.D.S., M.P.H.
Translational research related to women's health and infectious diseases

Rashmi Kaul, Ph.D.
