Research Interests:

Our lab concentrates on the molecular characterization of common and rare variants in genes associated with bleeding or thrombosis risk in humans. Through the study of large cohorts of human subjects, we and others have identified genetic variants associated with altered risk for disease. In our lab, we employ molecular and cellular techniques, such as mammalian cell culture, proteomic profiling, genome-wide CRISPR mediated knock-out screens, and mutagenesis libraries to functionally characterize the altered molecular genetic mechanisms contributing to disease risk.

No
Research Interests:

Hedgehog-driven cancers, viral oncogenesis, non-melanoma skin cancers

Pathology
Research Interests:

The Dressler lab utilizes genetic and biochemical approaches to understand the development of the kidney and reproductive tract. The lab has identified multiple epigenetic and cell signaling pathways that control epithelial cell lineage specification and differentiation. These pathways also contribute to chronic and acute renal disease and cancer, for which novel therapeutics are being developed.

Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology
Research Interests:
The goal of the lab is to understand the molecular and neural mechanisms behind behavior and to reflect on the role of the environment on the functioning of neural circuits. Our lab uses both molecular ("omics", genetics, etc.) and neurobiology techniques, such as behavior and in vivo brain imaging. Our goal is to uncover the molecular events underlying the establishment of behavioral states. A main focus of the lab is to study how neurons sense nutrients and how this impacts feeding behavior.
