Many of the current and recent members of our lab are shown in this snapshot. From left to right, they are Sherry Self-Krayesky, Katie Kinler, Nesha Calais, Janna Mahoney, Stacey Peltier and Kate Allaire. Notice also the fabulous (and delicious) cake fashioned to resemble Haliplanella. Details about these and other laboratory personnel appear below.
Principal Investigator with expertise in light and electron microscopy. I welcome potential graduate students to contact me. We have a really good lab with exciting opportunities for new students.

Principal Investigator with expertise in light microscopy and electrophysiology. I also am very much interested in asexual reproduction in sea anemones.
Nesha Calais - MS student with expertise in light microscopy and protein biochemistry. Research interests include mechanisms by which anemone hair cells accomplish repair.
Thanks also to the efforts of our talented group of undergraduates:
New students are welcome to join our group.
Pei-Ciao Tang - Doctoral student with interests in determining the identity of secreted proteins that repair traumatized hair cells. Pei-Ciao has expertise in electrophysiology, proteomics, molecular biology amd light microscopy
Shelcie Menard - Doctoral student with interests in determining the processes by which traumatized hair bundles reorganize during their recovery. Expertise in light microscopy.
Katrina Gundlach - Doctoral student with interests in sensory physiology following activation of the proline receptor. Additional interests include the mechanisms by which nudibranchs acquire cnidocytes. Expertise in light microscopy.
Jenny Brandau - MS student with interests in cell signaling.
