The Rajakovich Lab studies the biochemistry that allows human gut bacteria adapt to and influence their environment. This research will enable the use or manipulation of microbes and their enzymes for biocatalysis, synthetic and environmental biology, and therapeutics. Learn more.
Prof. Ince is an Assistant Professor of Sociology who researches the formal and informal rules that enable and inhibit the success of organizational diversity initiatives and the role of protest behavior in changing public discourse about racial inequality. Learn more.
The goal of the Marchand Lab research is to extend the nucleotide building blocks available in living systems for biosynthesis and use newly expanded metabolism for producing nucleic acids with emergent, programmable function. In applying this technology, my group looks to generate expanded genetic codes for biomanufacturing, develop more next-generation nucleic acids for diagnostics, and program bacteria for biosensing.
