The following research labs and faculty are affiliated with the GLOBES program:
The Beth Archie Lab
The Archie lab studies animal behavior, disease ecology and population genetics with relevance to species conservation and human and animal well being.
The Gary Belovsky Lab
The Belovsky Lab studies conservation and population biology with a focus on foraging theory as it relates to population dynamics, interspecific competition, predator-prey dynamics and nutrient cycling in ecosystems.
The Melissa Berke Lab
The Berke Lab studies organic molecules (biomarkers) and their stable isotopes to reconstruct past environmental conditions and climate variability.
Catherine Bolten, PhD, Anthropology
Dr. Bolten's research interests range from understanding youth aspiration in the wake of civil war to the politics of chimpanzee conservation in unprotected forest fragments.
The Nora Besansky Lab
Ongoing research in the Besansky laboratory centers on the evolutionary, ecological and population genomics of Anopheles mosquitoes that transmit malaria.
The Patricia Champion Lab
The Champion lab uses molecular, genetic, proteomic and biochemical approaches to better understand mycobacterial pathogenesis and to develop improved anti-tuberculosis vaccines.
Jon Coleman, PhD, History
The overlap of social, cultural, and environmental history in early America and the American West. Her current project examines chimpanzee survival, conservation, and the possibilities for zoonotic disease transfer.
The Jeffrey Feder Lab
The Feder Lab research elucidates sympatric speciation or the dividing of gene pools in the absence of geographic or physical isolation, and in the face of gene flow.
The Michael Ferdig Lab
The Ferdig Lab studies the genetics and genomics of drug resistance and virulence in the malaria parasite.
Agustin Fuentes, PhD, Anthropology
Current foci include cooperation and bonding in human evolution, ethnoprimatology and multispecies anthropology, evolutionary theory, and public perceptions of, and interdisciplinary approaches to, human nature.
The Holly Goodson Lab
The Goodson laboratory uses multifaceted approaches including biochemistry, molecular biology, and computational biology to address cell biological questions.
Chris Hamlin, PhD, History
Specializations include Modern Europe, Environmental history, History of science, Medicine and Technology
The Amy Hixon Lab
The Hixon Lab studies the science of actinides, present in the environment due to nuclear weapon products and nuclear fuel disposition.
The Hope Hollocher Lab
The Hollocher lab research combines population genetics, phylogenetics, molecular genetics and developmental biology to trace the changes responsible for morphological and reproductive differences between closely related species.
Bruce Huber, ND Law School
Bruce Huber teaches and conducts research in the areas of environmental law, natural resources law, property, and energy law.
The Gary Lamberti Lab
The Lamberti lab research interests are centered in aquatic ecology, especially stream and river ecology; working to better understand the structure and function of freshwater ecosystems on a changing planet.
The Mary Ann McDowell Lab
The biology of infectious disease utilizing a range of immunological, biochemical, and genomics techniques.
The Michael Lemmon Lab
The Lemmon lab's research seeks to understand the inter-relationship between communication, computation, and control in large-scale sensor-actuator networks.
The Marya Lieberman Lab
The Lieberman lab studies surface chemistry, self-assembly of two- and three-dimensional structures, and molecular electronics, and in this area they are currently studying nanostructures made from DNA. Their work also develops analytical devices to detect fake pharmaceuticals and perform other analytical tasks.
The Jason McLachlan Lab
Research in the McLachlan Lab focuses on the dynamics of plant populations faced with large scale environmental change.
The Robert Nerenberg Lab
The Nerenberg research group focuses on biological processes for water and wastewater treatment and reuse while seeking to better understand the impact of population growth and climate change.
The Alex Perkins Lab
The Perkins lab uses mathematical models to answer questions about the transmission and control of infectious disease.
The Mike Pfrender Lab
The Pfrender lab is interested in a broad range of topics in the area of evolutionary and ecological genomics with a particular interest in the relationship between short-term organismal responses to environmental stresses and long-term adaptive changes in novel environments.
The Adrian Rocha Lab
The Rocha Lab studies biological and environmental controls on ecosystem exchanges of mass and energy at various temporal and spatial scales.
Mark Schurr, PhD, Anthropology
Research focus is the archaeology of eastern North America especially from the Midcontinent to the Lower Great Lakes region. Special interests include stable isotope analysis and archaeological chemistry.
The Jennifer Tank Lab
The Tank lab research program addresses the biogeochemistry of aquatic ecosystems and centers on the influence of anthropogenic activities on stream ecosystem function.
