Dr. Brooks’ research is focused on age-associated declines in skeletal muscle and tendon structure and function. Specific interests include the causative role of oxidative stress in age-associated skeletal muscle atrophy and the impact that changes in muscle and tendon extracellular matrix have on muscle function and susceptibility to injury.
Prof. Julie Biteen is Associate Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Professor of Chemistry, and Biophysics. The Biteen Lab lab is developing single-molecule fluorescence imaging as a flexible, general technology for ultrahigh-resolution, real-time imaging to answer fundamental, topical questions about bacterial cell biology and metal nanoparticle plasmonics.
Eleanor J. “Josie” Clowney
Prof. Eleanor J. “Josie” Clowney is an Assistant Professor of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology. The Clowney lab investigates developmental and regulatory mechanisms that generate neural circuits and govern their function, using the olfactory system of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster as a model.
Prof. Gyorgyi Csankovszki is the Arthur F Thurnau Professor of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology. The Csankocszki Lab Research encompasses three basic processes relating to developmental biology: regulation of gene expression, segregation of chromosomes, and cytokinesis.
Prof. Katherine Gallagher is the John R Pfeifer Collegiate Professor of Surgery and Associate Professor of Surgery and of Microbiology & Immunology. Her research is focused on histone methylation changes in bone marrow progenitor cells and the impact on peripheral macrophage phenotypes as it relates to wound healing and inflammation.
Prof. Markos Koutmos is Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Biophysics. The Koutmos lab is interested in understanding how the 3D structure and dynamics of proteins and RNAs drive their biological function, specifically RNA modifications and RNA/protein interactions, RNA biology and processing and in RNA structure and dynamics.
Prof. Carey Lumeng is the Frederick G L Huetwell Professor for the Cure and Prevention of Birth Defects and an Associate Professor of Pediatrics and of Molecular & Integrative Physiology. His lab is focused on understanding the function of leukocytes in adipose tissue and the mechanisms by which they are actived obesity and contribute to diabetes.
Prof. Stephanie Moon is Assistant Professor of Human Genetics, Faculty Scholar of the Center for RNA Biomedicine, Affiliate Faculty, Biological Chemistry and of the Michigan Neuroscience Institute. The Moon Lab studies mRNA function, degradation, localization, and RNA-Protein granules
Paula Anne Newman-Casey
Professor Paula Newman-Casey is Jerome Jacobson Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual ciences, Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences and Associate Chair, Clinical Research, Medical School. Her research interest Understanding how we can leverage technology to extend the health care system’s reach by helping patients better self-manage their own chronic ophthalmic conditions.
Nils G. Walter
Professor Nils G. Walter is the Francis S Collins Collegiate Professor of Chemistry, Biophysics and Biological Chemistry. His lab uses tools from chemical biology, analytical chemistry, biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, and bioinformatics studying RNA biology and DNA nanotechnology, including the structure, dynamics and function of RNAs and DNA nanodevices outside and inside human cells.
Maria A Woodward
Prof. Maria Woodward is Edward T and Ellen K Dryer Career Development Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. The Woodward Lab is focused on healthcare delivery specifically for the anterior segment of the eye. The overarching goal is to personalize treatments earlier and more accurately in order to improve patient outcomes, especially in vulnerable populations.
Other Supporting Faculty including Past Mentors
The faculty members below have expressed an interest in being a part of the large pool of mentors willing to work with a post-doctoral fellow appointed to the program. After reviewing an applicants qualifications and experience, the review panel may suggest other University of Michigan faculty members, and the prospective appointee may request consideration by any qualified faculty mentor. During the interview process prior to selection, the applicant will meet with several faculty members in order to find the most suitable mentor.
