Amit investigates the role of chromatin remodeling in the regulation of alternative splicing to elucidate the regulation of gene isoform expression.

Laboratory: Manel Camps

Gerardo researches bacterial genomics, focused on the evolution of antibiotic resistance mediated by the horizontal transfer of plasmids in extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli (ExPEC), a pathogen that is a frequent cause of urinary tract infection and sepsis.

John Dzimianski

Laboratory: Rebecca DuBois

John's research interests revolve around the structural biology of viruses. The viruses that would be the subject of the summer projects are nairoviruses, a group of tick-borne pathogens that present an emerging global health threat.
