Nikki Heller

Nikki Heller is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

Christy Chang

Christy Chang is an associate professor of medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. My lab works on the genetics of hypertension and we do molecular analysis of known hypertension genes. I also conduct clinical studies to see if what we learned can improve clinical care.

Carly Page

Carly Page is a PhD student in the molecular microbiology and immunology program in the Graduate Program in Life Sciences (GPILS) at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. Carly works on SARS pathogenesis to better understand how to regulate the immune system.

Peter Murray

Peter Murray is a post doctoral fellow in the department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. My role in the lab is to find out how neurons in the motor cortex control movement.

Dr. Alan Faden

Dr. Alan Faden is professor of Anesthesiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine an Director, Center for Shock, Trauma and Anesthesiology Research (STAR) & National Study Center for Shock and EMS. Dr. Faden's research focuses on mechanisms and modulation of cell death and neuroinflammation after experimental brain or spinal cord injury, including molecular and cell biology, animal modeling, behavior and drug discovery. The program is highly interdisciplinary, utilizing molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, electrophysiology, pharmacology, behavior, magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, and quantitative histological analysis.
