Sayeepriyadarshini Anakk

Sayeepriyadarshini (Sayee) Anakk focuses on understanding liver metabolism in both normal and diseased states. She aims to investigate how bile acids and nuclear receptors maintain metabolic homeostasis and contribute to liver diseases, including cancer, using...
Huanyu Qiao

Huanyu Qiao

Huanyu (Joe) Qiao is an associate professor of comparative biosciences. His laboratory explores how post-translational modifications, such as SUMOylation (Small Ubiquitin-like Modifier) and ubiquitination, regulate various checkpoint pathways in mammalian cells....
Keith Jarosinski

Keith Jarosinski

Keith Jarosinski’s research spans multiple aspects of herpesvirus-induced cancers, including host-to-host transmission, latency, transformation, and reactivation, using Marek’s disease virus (MDV) in chickens as a natural translational animal model. Most herpesviruses...
