Graduate students


Riley St. Clair

Riley is studying Semphorin/Plexin/Collapsin Response Mediator Protein signaling
and its roles regulating vertebrate neuronal migration. 



Judith is studying Chagas Disease's etiology using proteomic, genomic and biogeographical approaches. These studies are in collaboraiton with Lori Stevens.



Amanda Northrop

Amanda is using metaproteomics to study ecological state changes.
These studies are in collaboration with Nick Gotelli.










Brendan Chandler

Brendan is studying signaling mechanisms mediated by the Crk/CrkL
family of adaptors in vertebrate central nervous system development.






Anna Schmoker

Anna is studying signaling mechanisms mediated by the DCBLD
family of receptors in vertebrate central nervous system development.
