UVM Signaling Sister Labs
Several signaling projects are being conducted in collaboration with the labs of
Professor Alicia Ebert and Professor Paula Deming
Norwich University Sister Laboratory
Professor Karen Hinkle Karen is studying novel regualtory
mechanisms of the Src family
of tyrosine kinases and their roles in neuronal migration using
biochemical, cellular and organsimal (c. elegans) approaches.
This work is in collaboration with Peter Juo.

Collaborative work at the interface of proteomics, genomics, ecology, evolution, phylogenetics, and environmental science:
Several NSF-funded projects are being pursued and have been collaborative studies with:
--Jim Vigoreaux, to study the evolved roles of Flightin in insect muscle.
--Jim Carpenter, Fernando Gelin, Federico Lopez-Osorio, Ingi Agnarsson and the late Kurt Pickett to study the systematics and phylogenetics of the wasp subfamily Vespinae.
--Nick Gotelli, Aaron Elison and Amanda Northrop to study tipping points in the miniature ecosystem of the Northern Pitcher Plant.
--Nick Gotelli, Aaron Elison, Sara Helms Cahan, Nate Sanders, Rob Dunn, Andrew Nguyen, John Stanton-Geddes, Joel Parker, et al. to study evolved and acute molecular changes in ants in response to thermal stress and climate change.
