Sylvia Christakos The object of research in my lab is to obtain a better understanding of the actions of vitamin D, a principal factor required for the development and maintenance of bone and for the maintenance of calcium homeostasis. It combines studies related to an understanding of the functional significance of vitamin D target proteins with studies related to the molecular mechanism of action of the active form of vitamin D, 1,25(OH)2D3. Studies are focused on the mechanisms by which vitamin D mediates its biological effects and how aberrant regulation may be involved in diseases such as osteoporosis.Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

Richard Howells We study the pharmacological chaperone activity of select opioid ligands that promote proper receptor folding during their biosynthesis in the secretory pathway, leading to enhanced expression of mature active opioid receptors at the cell surface. We also discovered that select delta antagonists inhibit the proliferation of human cancer cells. These opioids attenuate the development of opioid tolerance and dependence but do not block their acute analgesic activity, and also display immunosuppressant activity. We are actively pursuing the therapeutic potential of these drugs to treat cancer.Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

Hieronim Jakubowski I discovered an error-correcting mechanism in protein biosynthesis, which prevents access of the nonprotein amino acid homocysteine (Hcy) to the genetic code and is responsible for the biological synthesis of the chemically reactive thioester Hcy- thiolactone in humans. This discovery led to a fruitful avenue of ongoing research on the origin of the genetic code, epigenetic regulation of gene expression, mTOR signaling, mechanisms of Hcy incorporation into protein, and the role of Hcy-thiolactone and Hcy-containing proteins in cardiovascular and neurological diseases, including Alzheimer?s.Department of Microbiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics

Soyeon Kim My research interests are aimed at mitigating the public health impact of the HIV/AIDS and the resulting resurgent tuberculosis (TB) epidemics. I have participated in research to evaluate methods of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, co-infections with HIV, prevention and treatment of TB, and TB diagnostics. Much of my research in has been conducted in developing countries, including Thailand, Botswana, and South Africa. Working overseas has also spurred my interest in research capacity building in resource limited countries where infectious diseases are more prevalent.Department of Preventive Medicine & Community Health

This model synapse has been the focus of my research interest since 1968. Advances in molecular biology enable detailed study of proteins that are essential to the NMJ. When combined with the unmatched accessability of the NMJ to experimental study, molecular biologic techniques make the NMJ a critical system for discovering the function and trophic role of these proteins during development, maintenance, and pathobiology of synapses.

Yuanxiang Tao Research in my laboratory focuses on molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie chronic pain and opioid-induced analgesic tolerance and hyperalgesia. The long-term goal of our research is to develop novel therapeutic strategies for prevention and/or treatment of these disorders. Ongoing projects include: (1) Long noncoding RNA identification and its involvement in chronic pain; (2) Translational regulation that underlies chronic opioid tolerance and hyperalgesia; (3) Gene transcriptional changes in chronic pain; and (4) Molecular mechanisms of sickle cell disease-associated pain.Department of Anesthesiology
