Newborn Screening Program, Director, Michele Caggana, Sc.D.

Dr. Caggana’s laboratory uses molecular genetics techniques to study frequencies of specific gene mutations in dried blood spots.

image of Liang Chu
Environmental Atmospheric Chemistry, Liang T. Chu, Ph.D.

Dr. Chu's laboratory actively studies heterogeneous chemical reactions on ice-cloud and particle surfaces. These reactions occur in both the troposphere and lower stratosphere and can be very important to understand ozone depletion

image of Robert Glaser
Molecular Genetics, Robert L. Glaser, Ph.D.

Dr. Glaser's lab has established a robust genetic system involving West Nile virus infection of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster to identify host genes that modulate infection and demonstrated, that the RNA interference pathway provides innate immunity against West Nile virus infection in flies. 

Infectious Disease, Division Director, Ron Limberger Ph.D.

Scientists working in the Division of Infectious Diseases are involved in laboratory diagnostics, outbreak analysis and research on diseases of public health importance.
