Caviglia, Jorge Matias

Assistant Professor, Health and Nutrition Sciences, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

We conduct research on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which is strongly associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome, and is the most common liver disease...[read more]

Contel, Maria

Professor, Chemistry, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

My research program focuses on the synthesis and characterization of transition-metal complexes (early and late transition metals such as gold, silver, copper, platinum, palladium, ruthenium and titanium) and their applications...[read more]

Davenport, Lesley

Professor, Chemistry, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

Our laboratory is focused on biophysical studies of the shape, dynamics and interactions of complex biomolecules, and how these factors influence important biological functions...[read more]

Dowd, Terry

Associate Professor, Chemistry, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

My lab investigates protein structure using NMR and x-ray crystallography and investigates the interaction of proteins with membrane receptors...[read more]

Gallicchio, Emilio

Associate Professor, Chemistry, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

My laboratory is primarily involved in the development and application of molecular computational models of protein-drug binding and macromolecular molecular recognition phenomena...[read more]

Gibney, Brian R.

Professor, Chemistry, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

The Gibney laboratory is focused on developing the nascent field of de novo metalloprotein design as a constructive methodology to delineate the fundamental engineering of metalloproteins...[read more]

Greer, Alec

Professor, Chemistry, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

Ikui, Amy

Professor, Biology, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

Amy Ikui's laboratory studies DNA replication and cell division using single cell organisms, Saccharomyces cerevisiae (budding yeast) and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (green algae), with the goal of understanding the molecular mechanism of cell growth control in eukaryotes...[read more]

Jiang, Xinyin

Associate Professor, Health and Nutrition Sciences, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

My research is focused on nutrients involved in one carbon metabolism, such as choline, betaine, folate and vitamin B12, which affect various aspects of metabolic functions...[read more]

Juszczak, Laura J.

Associate Professor, Chemistry, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

Several aromatic dipeptides inhibit the angiogenic proliferative effect of the angiotensin I converting enzyme, ACE I, and thus curtail malignant cell proliferation... [read more]

Singh, Shaneen

Associate Professor, Biology, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

The research focus of my lab is the application of computational approaches to gain insight into cellular signal transduction pathways, and the normal and aberrant functioning of proteins and protein domains...[read more]

Tolias, Peter

Dean, School of Natural and Behavioral Sciences, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

My research team has focused on understanding the biochemistry of the Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase (MAPK) Signaling pathway and its role in cancer by developing and using drugs that can therapeutically modulate this biochemical pathway...[read more]

Torrente, Mariana

Assistant Professor, Chemistry, Brooklyn College (CUNY)

Our research involves epigenetics, proteomics and protein homeostasis. In particular, we are focused on the role of histone modifications in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)...[read more]
