DEBORAH J. ANDREW Professor, Department of Cell Biology, Johns Hopkins University

DEBORAH J. ANDREW Professor, Department of Cell Biology, Johns Hopkins University

Topic: Building body parts:  Lessons learned from simple critters Deborah Andrew’s research has focused on Drosophila developmental genetics since 1979, when she began her Master’s thesis. Since that time, Andrew’s lab (either she or someone in her group) has done almost every manipulation reported for this organism, ranging from imaginal disc transplantation to creating targeted gene knockouts by homologous recombination and ...

DAVID JULIAN Associate Professor, Department of Biology, University of Florida

Topic: Using active learning strategies to synergize your science teaching and research David Julian is a comparative, ecological physiologist with an interest in the cellular responses and adaptations of animals to environmental stressors. To an ecological physiologist, a stressor is any environmental condition that threatens an organism’s survival by pushing it outside its normal homeostatic ...

FABIENNE POULAIN Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, University of South Carolina

Topic: Precise destruction: how axon degeneration shapes the development of neuronal circuits in vivo Dr. Poulain is  originally from France and obtained her PhD from the University Paris 6-Pierre et Marie Curie,  studying  the roles of microtubule-regulating proteins stathmins in neuronal morphogenesis. She became convinced that observing axon growth directly in the embryo in vivo ...
