Dr. Poon is researching the wireless delivery of power and data to medical implants, the limits of utilizing polarization in communication systems, and applying mathematical concepts to RF/analog circuit architectures.
Mr. Oghalai's laboratory's basic science/translational research efforts are designed to better understand the mechanisms of hearing loss and their clinical research approaches are targeted to directly and rapidly improve the care of patients with hearing loss.
Dr. Südhof’s laboratory studies how synapses form in the brain, how their properties are specified, and how they accomplish the rapid and precise signaling that forms the basis for all information processing by the brain.
Dr. Chichilnisky's laboratory focuses on the study of retinal ganglion cells, which are the output neurons of the retina that send visual information to the brain in their spatio-temporal patterns of electrical activity.
Dr. Wang's research centers on the development of innovative approaches to the treatment of arrhythmias, including more effective catheter ablation techniques, more reliable implantable devices, and less invasive treatments.
Dr. Mackey's current research interests and projects include: virtual reality and real-time fMRI; applications of real-time fMRI Phase II; cortical restructuring in patients with chronic pain; cognitive load and perceived pain intensity; fMRI of the Human Cervical Spine; neurotoxins based therapies in chronic pain; intravenous lidocaine in neuropathic pain; outcome assessment in chronic pain; opiate induced hyperalgesia.
The Weinberg laboratory efforts are aimed at understanding the reciprocal interactions between immature T lymphocytes (“thymocytes”) and thymic epithelial cells, the stromal cells of the thymus which support T lymphocyte development. Such interactions are abnormal in both genetic diseases of children like severe combined immune deficiency (SCID) and the DiGeorge syndrome, and in aging and autoimmune diseases.
The research Dr. Maldonado has conducted has been focused on epidemiologic aspects of viral vaccine development and prevention of perinatal HIV transmission. A major project has been to identify the molecular epidemiology of factors affecting the immunogenicity of oral polio vaccine (OPV) among children living in developing areas of the world, where OPV immunogenicity is poor. Dr. Maldonando's group has identified several factors which affect the poor immunogenicity of OPV and will conduct clinical studies to attempt to improve immunogenicity.
Dr. Domingue has two areas of active research: The first focuses on statewide standardized test scores and their uses, particularly how test scores are used in statistical models that evaluate the effectiveness of teachers and schools; the second area of research focuses on the integration of genetic data into social science research.
