We try to understand why genetically identical animals do different things. Human monozygotic twins live for different amounts of time and succumb to different chronic diseases like cancer. Why will some animals live longer than others, even though they are genetically identical? Why will animals and people with the same risk allele succumb to or escape disease? We primarily utilize C. elegans and some cell culture to answer our questions.
We provide an environment which fosters and promotes diversity, equity and inclusion. We partnered with the STEMPREP program headed by Dr. Moses Williams for training underrepresented minority high school students in biomedical research science. We continue to work with individual trainees to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the research environment.
