Our laboratory uses a range of biomedical research tools including molecular biology, protein chemistry, crystallography, and molecular modeling to pursue the development of drugs for treatment of human diseases including HIV/AIDS. Students will participate in efforts to understand the structure and function of HIV enzymes reverse transcriptase and integrase, and how these key elements of the AIDS virus interact with and respond to small molecules that can block biochemical and virological function.

This propose study will investigate the benefits of feeding fish using duckweeds, as opposed to commercial feed. The use of duckweeds, as opposed to commercial feed, not only significantly affect the cost of aquaculture (1/3 of the cost is from feed), but it also protects wild fish, because it reduces the need for fish meals. The expansion of fish farming does not imply more demand for commercial fishing of shell fish and small fish used to produce fish meals -- this demand is met with duckweeds. (...)

Our laboratory seeks to understand how unicellular algae perceive and respond to environmental signals. This is a fundamental issue in biology; how does a cell control gene expression in a variable environment? We use diatoms as model organisms to understand how algae alter gene expression in response to changes in light, temperature and nutrient availability.

The Hanford site in Washington state is home to one of the greatest concentrations of radioactive wastes in the world mostly generated from plutonium production reactors during the time-frame, 1944–1987. The most significant challenge at Hanford is stabilizing the >50 million U.S. gallons of high-level radioactive waste (HLW) stored in 177 underground tanks. As per the current strategy, the radioactive waste will be blended with glass forming materials and vitrified into borosilicate glasses by (...)

Bed bugs are a fast growing urban pest of significant public health importance. Bed bugs bites cause discomfort, loss of sleep, anxiety, and sometimes allergic reactions. The current resurgence of bed bugs in the U.S. and many other countries stimulated interests in finding better methods to prevent and control bed bugs. Unfortunately, bed bugs are difficult to control. Many of the existing products or techniques designed for bed bugs are not very effective or lack research data proving their effectiveness. (...)
