This list of affiliated investigators can help you identify potential research mentors at the University of Pittsburgh. PSTP students can, and do, work with mentors not on this list, but the investigators featured below have expressed interest in hosting PSTP students in their laboratories.
Zandrea Ambrose, PhD
HIV infection and therapeutics
Kara Bernstein, PhD
Repair of DNA damage is crucial to prevent mutations observed in cancer. Using live cell imaging, we study how double-strand breaks are repaired.
Jennifer Bomberger, PhD
Understanding the molecular mechanisms for viral-bacterial synergy in the lungs of chronic lung disease patients
Neal DeLuca, PhD
HSV gene expression in productive and persistent infections
Terence Dermody, MD
Research in the Dermody laboratory focuses on the molecular mechanisms of Mammalian Orthoreovirus (reovirus) and Chikungunya virus infections
Joanne Flynn, PhD
Immunology and Pathogenesis of Tuberculosis
Kyle Orwig, PhD
Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) and male germ lineage development
Edward Prochownik, MD, PhD
Metabolic, molecular and biochemical changes in animal models of pediatric and adult liver cancers and how best to capitalize on these for therapeutic purposes
Anthony Richardson, PhD
Immunometabolism at the host:pathogen interface using Staphylococcus aureus as a model pathogen
Kathy Shair, PhD
Studying Epstein-Barr virus molecular pathogenesis in the nasopharynx using 3-D cell air-liquid interface culture models.
