Biochemistry Faculty

John Corbett, PhD, Chairman and Professor

Corbett, John, PhD, Chairman

Chairman and Professor. Diabetes, beta-cell biology, inflammation innate immunity, cell signaling, cell fate decisions.

Witek Korytowski

Korytowski, Witek, PhD

Assistant Professor in the lab of Albert Girotti, PhD at the Medical College of Wisconsin in the Department of Biochemistry.

Dahms, Nancy, PhD

Professor. Our research investigates the molecular mechanisms underlying the functioning of mannose 6-phosphate receptors (MPRs) in mammalian cells.

Mirza, Shama, PhD

Assistant Professor. Our primary research interest is to develop novel technologies for the comprehensive characterization of cellular proteomes in order to better understand protein functions and interactions under normal and disease states.

Fu, Jianhua, PhD

Associate Professor. Current research in the laboratory is focused on the structural mechanisms of gene transcription and regulation in eukaryotic cells.

Misra, Ravi, PhD

Professor. Our current work concerns (1) understanding the mechanism by which the Serum Response Factor (SRF) mediates gene expression during early cardiogenesis, and (2) understanding mechanisms controlling the in vivo expression of the SRF gene itself during early development.

Girotti, Albert, PhD

Professor. Aerobic cells may experience oxidative stress damage if their enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant defenses are overwhelmed by reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by various endogenous and exogenous challenges.

Park, Jong-In, PhD

Associate Professor. Proliferative programs of normal mammalian cells are interfaced with a variety of innate tumor-suppressive mechanisms that can trigger apoptosis or senescence in response to aberrant cell proliferation.

Griffith, Owen, PhD

Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry, Medical College of Wisconsin

Peterson, Francis, PhD

Francis Peterson, PhD is an Associate Professor and NMR Facility Manager at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Rebekah Gundry, Ph.D.

Gundry, Rebekah, PhD

Assistant Professor. Interface of stem cell biology and analytical protein biochemistry to better understand pluripotent stem cells and their derivatives in the context of cardiac development and disease.

Scaglione, Matt, PhD

Assistant Professor. Understanding how ubiquitin and chaperone pathways function to prevent the accumulation of neurotoxic proteins involved in neurodegenerative diseases with a special interest in tauopathies.

Hill, Blake, PhD

Professor. Druggability of proteins involved in mitochondrial homeostasis in healthy and diseased cells to identify molecular mechanism and novel therapeutic routes.

Twining, Sally, PhD

Professor. The two major projects in the laboratory are elucidation of the role of proteinases and proteinase inhibitors in corneal wound healing and corneal ulceration and exploration of the effects of maspin in corneal wound healing and in carcinogenesis.

Jackson, Vaughn, PhD

Professor. Transcription within a eucaryotic cell is not a process in which RNA polymerase can freely access the DNA for either initiation or elongation of the transcript.

Volkman, Brian, PhD

Professor. A primary focus in the lab is understanding how signaling and adhesion molecules interact with each other to direct the migration and activity of cells involved in immune responses.

Kim, Jung-Ja, PhD

Professor. Our research interest is to study the structure-function relationship of biologically interesting molecules by using X-ray diffraction methods, one of the most powerful techniques to date to study macromolecular structure.
