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.
Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, emphasis upon clinical application; Cell:biomaterial interactions; Epimorphic regeneration in mammals
Identify phosphorylations, dephosphorylations and acetylations that regulate ATM activity in vivo
Neurophysiology of sensory-motor coordination, brain-machine interfaces
Investigation of the molecular mechanisms that regulate the pathogenesis of genetic and acquired cardiomyopathies
The Billiar Lab focuses on the immune responses to acute systemic stresses of major clinical relevance including trauma and surgical sepsis
The mechanisms of cross-priming of antigens during immune responses to cancer, viruses and autoimmunity
Demand adapted hematopoiesis in infection and inflammation
Protein “quality control”, diseases associated with misfolded proteins, and drug treatments for these diseases
