Senior Associate Dean, Graduate Education & Postdoctoral Affairs and Professor of Developmental Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe use genetic and cellular approaches to investigate the molecular basis of glial development and myelination in the zebrafish.
Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Radiology (Precision Health and Integrated Diagnostics)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur lab is dedicated to solving problems at the interface of engineering, soft matter, and biology. Current focus includes microfluidics fundamentals and applications in disease diagnostics (e.g., tuberculosis, sepsis, allergy), and single-cell wound repair and learning.

Mary Frances Nunez Teruel
Assistant Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Teruel Lab uses a combination of engineering and biological approaches including high-throughput screening of RNAi and DNA construct libraries, CRISPR libraries, targeted mass spectrometry, live-cell fluorescence microscopy, and bioinformatics to investigate the systems biology of cell differentiation and tissue renegeneration, with a particular focus on uncovering the molecular mechanisms underlying insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity.
Professor of Genetics, of Biology and, by courtesy, of Chemistry
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe develop chemogenetic and optogenetic technologies for probing and manipulating protein networks, cellular RNA, and the function of mitochondria and the mammalian brain. Our technologies draw from enzyme engineering, directed evolution, chemical biology, organic synthesis, high-resolution microscopy, genetics, and computational analysis.
