aielloProfessor John R. Aiello's research focuses upon the regulation and control of social interaction (including the role of nonverbal components of interaction).  His research interests include: leadership, stress, social facilitation, distraction, electronic performance monitoring, telecommuting, feedback, goal-setting, privacy, supervisory communication style, social justice and others. His research team has been involved in doing literature searches and meta-analysis coding as well. Topics of literature search include privacy legislation, performance feedback, social facilitation, computermonitoring and others. The research team provides students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the day-to-day operations of research in social and organizational psychology. Students will participate in the excitement of discovery: they will learn how research is generated and hypotheses are formulated, how investigations are conducted, and how data are organized, analyzed, and interpreted. There are many opportunities to participate in the training for and the execution of research, both in the field and in the lab. Students are able to learn how to effectively research the literature on topics related to social and organizational psychology. Working as a team is a central part of our research, and students have a great opportunity to learn how best to work together. Students also will have an opportunity to acquire skills that are invaluable in graduate school and in the workforce. These skills include literature searches, using SPSS to organize and analyze data, detecting and correcting problems that arise in the lab, and brainstorming ideas for future studies with the research team. The more initiative students take, the more opportunities they will have to acquire these skills.

Professor Qian Cai, is interested in molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating the autophagy-lysosomal pathway, and its impact on neuronal development, function, and degeneration.  Autophagy-lysosomal function is now considered as indispensable for the homeostasis of cells.  Neurons appear particularly vulnerable to autophagy-lysosomal dysfunction and toxin accumulation.  Defects within this pathway have been directly linked to several major neurodegenerative diseases.  Her lab has focused on addressing how retrograde transport of late endocytic organelles regulates autophagy-lysosomal function, thereby contributing to the maintenance of axonal homeostasis.  Using genetic mouse models and cell biological approaches combined with time-lapse imaging and gene rescue experiments in live neurons, the Cai lab will determine how the mitochondrial quality is properly controlled through neuronal mitophagy, and how the defects within this system contribute to neurodegeneration.  These studies will advance our understanding of pathogenesis of a variety of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by damaged mitochondria or a dysfunctional autophagy-lysosomal system.

Professor Monica Driscoll, is interested in developmental neurogenetics, molecular genetics of neuronal cell death, mechanosensory transduction in touch and feeling, molecular mechanisms of aging.  One of the looming mysteries in signal transduction is the question of how mechanical signals such as pressure or force delivered to a cell are interpreted to direct biological responses.  A long-standing problem in the mechanotransduction field has been that genes encoding mechanically-gated channels eluded cloning efforts resulting in a large gap in our understanding of their function.  A new family of ion channels (the degenerin channels) are hypothesized to function as the central mediators of touch transduction and proprioception (how the body maintains coordinated movement) in C. elegans.  Her lab combines genetic molecular and electrophysiological approaches to determine and compare the composition/regulation of mechanosensitive complexes in an effort to contribute to the understanding of the function of this newly discovered channel class.

Professor Brad Evans is a specialist in nineteenth and early-twentieth century American literature. His research explores the complicated intellectual history of conceptualizing art objects (like novels) as belonging to national and cultural traditions. His interest in this topic has led him to write about fraught instances of cultural circulation, as suggested by two new projects nearing completion. In the first, he has co-produced the reconstruction of an important 1914 silent feature film by Edward S. Curtis, In the Land of the Head Hunters, the first of its kind to feature an entirely indigenous cast drawn from the Kwakwaka’wakw (Kwakiutl) of British Columbia. The goal of the project was to provide a scholarly recovery of the melodramatic genre of the film and to present unique Kwakwaka’wakw perspectives on their role in its production and conservation. His other new project is a book about an international vogue for proto-modernist periodicals known as "ephemeral bibelots," which appeared throughout Europe, Asia, South America and the United States for a brief moment in the 1890s. He uses the bibelot vogue to rework the literary history of the period and ask fundamental questions about how art moves. He is the recent recipient of a research fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies for work on the bibelot project.

Professor Bonnie Firestein  works in the field of neurobiology, and is interested in mentoring students who intend to pursue a Ph.D., going on to graduate school for research (this does not include pre-med students).  In order for neurons to communicate, distinct proteins must be targeted to distinct sites.  Since the neuron is a highly polarized cell, it is a model system in which to study protein targeting.  Dr. Firestein's laboratory studies the targeting of PSD-95, a protein that localizes solely to sites on dendrites termed the post-synaptic density (PSD).  It is at these sites that interneuronal communication takes place.  Understanding how proteins are targeted to the PSD will help us to understand events underlying synaptic plasticity and long-term potentiation.  Dr. Firestein would like to work with student mentees who are interested in research or scientific writing.

Professor Barth D. Grant, of the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, is interested in molecular membrane biology, especially the mechanisms controlling the uptake of proteins and lipids at the surface of cells, a process called endocytosis. The cells of our bodies are surrounded by a lipid bilayer that separates the molecules inside the cell from those on the outside.  This membrane barrier provides cellular identity, and is essential for life as we know it, but it also represents a problem.  How are large molecules that the cell needs to survive internalized?  Likewise, how can the composition of the membrane be controlled to optimize the interaction of the cell with its environment?  These fundamental issues of cellular function are solved in part by membrane traffic, the regulated movement of regions of membrane and their associated macromolecules using small carriers called vesicles. To gain new insight into the mechanisms that drive this pathway, the Grant lab takes advantage of the unique experimental features of the microscopic nematode C. elegans that have made it a leading model organism in nearly all areas of modern biological research. Chief among these features are highly advanced genetics and transgenic technology, very simple methods for gene knockdown (RNAi) and knockout, coupled with a transparent body that allows visualization of fluorescently tagged molecules in living animals.

Grumet Martin 3d229Professor Martin Grumet has worked on nervous system development and spinal cord injury using stem cell transplants. Dr. Grumet’s lab is now focusing on the ability of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) to modulate inflammation after spinal cord injury. Because MSC disappear rapidly after intravenous injection, his lab has developed techniques to encapsulate the cells in alginate microspheres and inject then into the CNS. The alginate is inert and allows nutrients and waste to pass across its semi-permeable barrier, which allows cells in the capsules to survive for long periods after transplantation. The alginate also allows passage of cytokines, which is particularly important because MSC respond to inflammation by secreting anti-inflammatory cytokines. We have shown that encapsulated MSC suppress inflammation acutely after spinal cord injury. In recent studies we found that encapsulated MSC reduce inflammatory cytokines in animal models for sepsis.

gu_guopingProfessor Guoping (Sam) Gu is interested in molecular mechanisms of epigenetic inheritance. A growing body of evidence indicates that non-DNA sequence information (i.e., epigenetic information) acquired in ancestral generations can be heritable and have a phenotypic effect in descendants. The ability of transmitting epigenetic information through cell cycle and generational boundaries is an essential component of gene regulation and developmental control, yet the molecular mechanisms remain elusive. Professor Gu focuses on one mechanism that leads to a heritable epigenetic effect: RNA-induced chromatin modification that can last for multiple generations after the initial RNA exposure in C. elegans.  Combining genetics, molecular biology and computational approaches, he studies how RNA triggers an epigenetic memory and how RNA-induced epigenetic signals are transmitted through generational boundaries.

Professor Sam Gunderson does RNA-based research focusing on the regulation of gene expression at the level of processing of precursor mRNA in mammalian cells.  His lab seeks to understand how a single gene can produce 10's to 100's of unique mRNAs some of which can lead to unique proteins.  Biochemical methods are used to reconstitute regulatory pathways so as to gain mechanistic insight into the inner workings of gene expression regulatory complexes.  Professor Gunderson’s research is focused on developing new technologies to detect all the alternatively spliced and polyadenylated mRNAs in a given cell type, something current gene microarrays fail to do.  A recent development is a new gene silencing technology, which uses a completely different mechanism than RNA interference.   He is looking for novel polymers and delivery systems to introduce U1in gene silencing molecules into cells and animals with the goal of developing genomic-wide high throughput methods for functional genomics.

Professor John P. Hughes  while growing up in New York City (mostly oblivious to popular culture) just couldn't get enough of astronomy.  So you can imagine how thrilled he was to be involved in building satellites for NASA on the way to a degree in astrophysics from Columbia University.  These days Dr. Hughes has traded in his 2-inch diameter backyard telescope for the 10-meter diameter Southern African Large Telescope (funded in part by Rutgers) north of Cape Town.  One of his current research projects is a large-area, multiwavelength sky survey aiming for an accurate census of massive clusters of galaxies to measure the rate of structure growth in the Universe and thereby answer questions about the nature of dark matter and dark energy that control its evolution.  He also studies the aftermaths of supernova explosions, including both the superdense crushed interiors of massive stars and the exploded outer parts that fly off at speeds of thousands of kilometers per second.  A strong advocate for undergraduate research, Dr. Hughes also teaches High Energy Astrophysics, Stars and Star Formation, Astronomy and Cosmology, the Physics of Sound, as well as an honors seminar on the Science and Life of Albert Einstein.  Dr. Hughes enjoys travel, biking, skiing, opera, and now pays close attention to US domestic and international policy issues.

kwan kelvinProfessor Kelvin Y. Kwan, was an undergraduate at Caltech and a graduate student at Harvard University where he studied molecular biology and biochemistry. It was not until his post-doctoral career at Harvard Medical School when he ventured into the field of neuroscience and honed in on studying the sensory hair cells of the inner ear. He joins a well-established group of auditory neuroscientists to continue his research at Rutgers. Although Dr. Kwan’s research focuses on the development of cultured stem cells for the auditory system, he has also been heavily engaged with the nascent consortium of Rutgers scientists who use human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) to probe mental health disorders. The ability to interact with colleagues in his field as well as reach out and benefit from cross disciplinary studies was a major draw for his arrival at Rutgers.

Professor Alice Y. Liu, of the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, is interested in understanding why the ability to withstand stress is diminished in aging, in general and in neurons in particular.  She studies the regulation of a stress induced genetic mechanism – induction of the heat shock response (HSR); the increased expression of HSP chaperones serves to facilitate protein folding to confer stress resistance.  Her current research is focused on the identification and elucidating the mechanism of action of drugs/small molecules that can enhance the HSR to “protect” cells under stress for possible therapeutics development. Dr. Liu teaches the course Molecular Biology (146:478). She firmly believes in the importance of research based learning and has mentored a good number of undergraduate students over the years. She enjoys working and interacting with students in the classroom and at the lab bench.   In her capacity as a teacher, she tries to inspire and challenge ALL of her students to strive for their very best.

Professor Mary Shaw focuses most of her research on 19th- and 20th-Century French poetry, particularly Mallarmé, but her work explores poetry's relations with other genres (theater and various types of fictional and non-fictional prose) and with disparate art forms (music, dance, and the visual arts). She often works across centuries as well. Much of her teaching has revolved around the Zimmerli Art Museum's fin-de-siècle illustrated book and journal collection. In recent years, she has also published two poetry and a bilingual children's books. You will also find her teaching some of the beginning French literature courses.

Shih David d8c32 Professor David Shih is an associate professor in the New High Energy Theory Center (NHETC) of the Department of Physics & Astronomy. He received his PhD from Princeton in 2006, was a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard and the Institute for Advanced Study from 2006-2010, and joined the Rutgers faculty in 2010. His research focuses on theoretical particle physics. For many decades, the Standard Model has been incredibly successful at describing the fundamental interactions of matter and energy at the highest energies and shortest distances. But there are many reasons (dark matter, neutrino masses, grand unification and naturalness to name a few) to expect new particles and interactions Beyond the Standard Model (BSM). Professor Shih studies models for BSM physics and their predictions for various experiments around the world, especially the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which is the highest-energy particle collider ever built.

stone matthewProfessor Matthew Stone, is the Graduate Program Director in the Computer Science Department, and a member of the Center for Cognitive Science. His research aims at building computer systems that can communicate naturally with people. Sometimes the work leads to proof-of-concept software systems with new capabilities. These demos have given computers new ways to describe actions in natural language instructions, to ask and answer clarification questions, to use and understand vague language sensibly, and to communicate expressively with intonation, facial expressions, and hand gestures. Many of these demos get their behavior by understanding and imitating the people that talk to them. This research involves more than just writing programs. It’s also crucial to get clear on what meaning is, how languages encode it, and how people process it. Stone regularly collaborates with philosophers, linguists and psychologists, and helps supervise student research across a range of methodologies, to help answer these bigger questions.

syrett_kristenProfessor Kristen Syrett studies first language acquisition, investigating when and how children come to have an adult-like understanding of certain words and sentence interpretations.  In her experimental, psycholinguistic research with children age two to six and undergraduates, she finds creative ways to evaluate the meaning that children and adults assign to words like verbs and adjectives, what kinds of linguistic and contextual information they use to constrain the hypothesis space, what suppresses or facilitates certain interpretations, and how language processing and grammatical mechanisms interact.  She focuses on semantics, syntax, and pragmatics, and the interfaces between these areas.  She is a member of the faculty of Linguistics and the Center for Cognitive Science (RuCCS) and directs the Laboratory for Developmental Language Studies, where she has a number of talented and eager research assistants. Outside of research and teaching, she is devoted to raising her two beautiful children, enjoys spinning (indoor cycling), and loves finding new ways to deepen her yoga practice.

xie pingProfessor Ping Xie, of the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, is interested in regulation of immune cell homeostasis and functionality which is central to the proper functioning of the immune system in vertebrates.  Aberrant functions of immune cells and dysregulation of immune responses contribute to the pathogenesis of almost all human diseases, including infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, inflammation, neurodegenerative disorders, and cancers.  To understand the molecular mechanisms of immune regulation, she starts from a critical regulator of the immune system, a cytoplasmic adaptor protein termed TRAF3.  She is currently investigating the contributions and mechanisms of TRAF3 in B lymphomagenesis.  She is also elucidating the functions and mechanisms of TRAF3 in innate immunity and inflammation by generating myeloid cell-specific TRAF3-/- mice.  Knowledge gathered from these research programs will provide new insights into the molecular mechanisms of immune regulation and cancer pathogenesis, and will lead to the development of novel therapeutic strategies for the treatment of B lymphoma and chronic inflammation.
