Role of miRNAs in the differential translation of Surfactant Protein A gene variants

Surfactant protein A (SP-A) plays a role in maintaining normal lung function, host defense, and inflammation. Prematurely born infants with insufficient SP-A exhibit higher risk for lung injury, infection, and respiratory disorders. Genetic variants of SP-A have been associated with lung disease susceptibility, and differ in regulatory regions (3’UTRs) that may interact with cellular microRNAs. MiRNAs are small molecules that repress translation, and have been reported as potential therapeutic targets. The goal of this project is to study whether specific miRNAs differentially affect the expression of genetic variants of SP-A.

All hosts are not created equal: understanding variation in disease susceptibility among amphibian species

Loss of biodiversity represents one of the most urgent conservation issues of the 21st century. Some estimates suggest that the current rate of world-wide species extinctions exceeds any observed in the last 100,000 years (Wilson 1992). Global amphibian population declines represent one of the most dramatic examples of the biodiversity crisis; as many as one-third of all amphibian species are threatened by extinction (Stuart et al. 2004). As in other wildlife systems, emerging infectious diseases have come to play a central role in facilitating the loss of amphibians. The fungal pathogen, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), which causes the disease, chytridiomycosis, has expanded in prevalence, impact and geographic and host range since its first discovery (Berger et al. 1998). Although we have learned a great deal about the ecology and spatial distribution of Bd, far less is known about species-specific variation in susceptibility to Bd and the physiological mechanisms that may underlie susceptibility, tolerance or resistance to the pathogen. My research bridges the complementary fields of ecology and comparative biology with the sciences of microbiology and immunology to characterize and explain variation in disease susceptibility in this conservation-relevant host-pathogen system.

The complex roles of liver immune cells in biliary obstruction

Many liver diseases are accompanied by cholestasis, the accumulation of bile in the liver.  The mechanisms behind cholestasis are unknown.  My study aims to investigate the specific role that three immune cell populations, invariant natural killer T cells (iNKT), Kupffer cells (liver macrophages), and neutrophils, play in cholestatic liver disease.  Preliminary data show a strong link between iNKT cells and decreased cholestasis through Kupffer cell activation and suppression of neutrophil accumulation. It remains to be elucidated how this occurs.  The outcomes of this study would lead to better understanding the mechanisms of cholestasis and allow for improved therapeutic design.

Adaptive evolution in hormonally mediated suites of traits

Responses to changing selection pressures involve adaptive evolutionary shifts in suites of traits. However, the evolutionary mechanisms and consequences of such correlated trait shifts remain poorly understood. My research aims to understand how genetic and environmental forces modify hormonal systems to drive adaptive evolution in suites of traits. I take advantage of an emergent model system, the Trinidadian guppy (Poecilia reticulata), and the extensive literature on corticosteroid stress responses to conduct this work. My overarching goal is to shed light on the complex interaction between genetic and plastic variation and the role of neuroendocrine systems in driving evolutionary processes.

Top-down and bottom-up effects in tropical forest restoration: Interactions between the taxonomic and trait diversity of planted seedlings, herbivory, sapling growth and natural recruitment

Top-down and bottom-up forces have strong effects on insect herbivores.  Top-down control comes from predators and parasitoids and bottom-up control relates to plant defenses.  Because herbivores limit plant growth in restoration, this project is designed to inform methods in tropical reforestation by investigating top-down and bottom-up limitations on herbivory in reforestation in Costa Rica.  The experiment includes variation in plant functional traits hypothesized to be important in limiting herbivory.  Herbivory and sapling growth are being monitored as is predator and parasitoid diversity.   It is hoped that a better understanding of plant-insect interactions in restoration will enhance sapling growth.

Sexual selection favoring elaborate male displays in the peacock spider, Maratus volans

In nature, males often present females with complex, multi-modal (more than one sensory modality) signals. The adaptive significance (if any) of multi-modal signals is poorly understood, as is how females choose potential mates based on these complex signals. For my research I will examine the role of multi-modal signals in the mating behavior of the Australian endemic peacock spider, Maratus volans. Specifically I aim to: (1) Determine the type(s) of information contained in multi-modal signals and (2) Examine female preferences to multi-modal signals. By taking an in-depth look at signaling behavior and female preferences to these signals, I will investigate hypotheses regarding the function of multi-signals.

Introduction history and patterns of spread of a tritrophic system in a novel habitat

When entire trophic assemblages are introduced to a novel habitat, the evolutionary dynamics of re-associations and novel biotic associations can be studied. I’m currently examining the establishment and spread of the tri-trophic, coevolved European system consisting of wild parsnip (Pastinaca sativa), parsnip webworm (Depressaria pastinacella), and the parasitoid, Copidosoma sosares, which has been introduced to the US at different points in time. Using molecular markers, I can determine the number of introductions, the genetic diversity of the founding organisms, and the location of the source population(s) to ultimately address the factors involved in the establishment and spread of invasive populations.

Identifying multigenerational fitness consequences to mate choice in Tribolium castaneum

Sexual selection can produce elaborate traits, but its influence on within population evolution is poorly understood. Three “episodes” of selection determine reproductive success, and thus trait evolution: (1) acquiring matings, (2) sperm competing to fertilize eggs after mating, and (3) producing quality offspring. The second episode is least understood because of difficulty in distinguishing sperm from different males within female reproductive tracts. Genetically transformed lines of beetles with fluorescently tagged sperm enable identification of individual’s sperm within females mated to multiple males. Combining observations of all “episodes” of selection will provide insight to the complexities of reproductive success

Understanding the use of antibiotics on small dairy farms in Cajamarca, Peru

Agriculture in developing countries predominately focuses on small farms which use animals to sustain livelihoods and produce income. Livestock health and productivity can be greatly improved with the proper use of animal medications, while improper use can result in adulteration of the food product, loss of income for farmers and constitute a public health threat.  In order for farmers to produce high quality, safe food products, the judicious use of animal drugs must be promoted. My research will describe drug use in dairy cattle in Cajamarca, Peru, a major dairy-producing center characterized by small farms, with the goal of improving animal health, productivity and milk quality.

Implications of Climate Change on Rural Livelihoods and Household Food Security under rain-fed agriculture in Eastern Kenya

The study explores the impact of climate change and variability to small scale farmers in semi-arid (analogue 1) and sub humid (analogue 2) regions of Kenya. Specifically, it seeks to establish gender related coping strategies and sustainable crop and water management options with a view of influencing appropriate policy framework. The methods used include field trials, household interviews, focus group discussions and key informants interviews that will yield both qualitative and quantitative data.
