Tinisha Hancock
PB Graduate Student

Shumaila Hanif

Debra Hansen

Katie Hansen
Lecturer, Ph.D.

Adron Harris
M. June and J. Virgil Waggoner Chair In Molecular Biology
Director, Waggoner Center for Alcohol & Addiction Research


This laboratory is investigating molecular mechanisms responsible for alcoholism and drug dependence. We are defining actions of alcohol and other drugs on brain cells as well as the long-term ... Adron Harris

Kristen Harris
Professor of Neuroscience


Knowing the dimensions and connectivity of synapses is fundamental to understanding function. In the brain, more than 90% of synapses occur on dendritic spines. These tiny protrusions from the ... Kristen Harris

Rasika Harshey
Professor in Molecular Genetics & Microbiology


We have two major research interests: DNA transposition and Bacterial Signaling & Motility. (1) DNA transposition is central to the propagation of phage Mu (our model system) as it is to ... Rasika Harshey

Christine Hawkes
Associate Professor


Research in the Hawkes Lab is focused on a mechanistic understanding of how plant-microbe interactions affect community and ecosystem processes. We explore how these relationships are influenced by ... Christine Hawkes

David L. Herrin
Professor of Molecular Cell & Developmental Biology

Most of our research revolves around the chloroplast genome of plants and algae, which we view as a simpler model genome (compared to the nucleus) for understanding genome expression, regulation, and ... David L. Herrin

Linda Hicke

David Hillis
Alfred W. Roark Centennial Professor In Natural Sciences
Director, Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics


Evolutionary biology provides a conceptual framework for understanding patterns of molecular diversity. For instance, phylogenetic analyses have permeated most fields of molecular biology in recent ... David Hillis

Mary Christina Hines

Hans A. Hofmann
Associate Professor
ICMB Fellow


The research in Dr. Hofmann's laboratory seeks to understand the molecular and hormonal mechanisms that underlie social behavior and its evolution. African cichlid fishes are an ideal model system to ... Hans A. Hofmann

Lin Huffman
Graduate Student

Jon Huibregtse
Professor in Molecular Genetics & Microbiology
Graduate Advisor, Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program


The Huibregtse lab studies the biochemistry of the ubiquitin proteolysis system, a major pathway for degradation of proteins in eukaryotic cells. Our interest in this pathway arose from study of ... Jon Huibregtse

Alexander C. Huk
Associate Professor, Ph.D.


Research in our lab focuses on how we see things move. We treat visual motion as a model system for investigating how the brain integrates information over space and time— as well as how these neural ... Alexander C. Huk

Robert Hummer

Enamul Huq
Associate Professor in Molecular Cell & Developmental Biology


Our research is aimed at understanding light signal transduction, specifically those pathways mediated by the phytochrome (phy) family of sensory photoreceptors that absorb light in the red and ... Enamul Huq
