Discoveries for a Better Tomorrow


Exploiting the Weakness of Mosquitoes - Christopher Potter, Ph.D.

Dr. Potter's lab understands that mosquitoes pass on a disease through a simple bite. They are working to understand how an insect’s brain interprets and responds to odors. This will allow them to find better methods to stop the spread of diseases, such as malaria and Zika virus.

Using Modern Technology to Prevent Disease Infection – Maria Trent, M.D.

Dr. Trent's lab understands how women contract pelvic inflammatory disease, which increases the risk of other STDs. They provide home-based clinical care to help young woman complete treatments for the disease and prevent any future episodes of infection.

Treating Diseases by Understanding Cell Identity - Patrick Cahan, Ph.D.

Dr. Cahan's lab studies the molecular basis of cell type identity. He is making a tool that measures how closely cells grown in a lab mimic those in our bodies, which could help pave the way to replacing damaged tissue and more effectively studying diseases in the lab. The tool will also help him detect how cancer rewires the normal circuitry of a cell.
