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

Evolution, systematics, biogeography, and functional and comparative anatomy of fossil and recent mammals
Dolores Vazquez-Sanroman, Ph.D.
Dr. Vazquez-Sanroman studies the neurobiology of opioid and psychostimulants addiction, cellular signal mechanisms of reward-related plasticity in an adolescent rodent model.
David R. Wallace, Ph.D.
Effects of environmental or disease toxins on brain functioning
Anne Weil, Ph.D.
Vertebrate paleontology (mammalian): evolution and recovery from mass extinction events
Nedra Wilson, Ph.D.
