Email: doseffan@msu.edu

Fields of Interest: Regulatory gene and protein networks of immune cell fate and apoptosis; anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic mechanisms of phytochemicals; phytochemical target identification; the role of cell death regulators in immune-regulation and immune-oncology; foods for health.

James P. Luyendyk, Ph.D.
Associate Professor
Institute for Integrative Toxicology
Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology

Location: 253 Food Safety

Fields of Interest:The liver synthesizes numerous coagulation factors, making altered hemostasis a significant concern in patients with end-stage liver disease. Our laboratory approaches this connection early in the pathogenesis of liver disease. The team’s long-term goal is to understand the mechanisms whereby the coagulation cascade contributes to the pathogenesis of liver disease. [excerpt, Luyendyk Laboratory site]

Fields of Interest: Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms for impairment of signal transduction cascades and gene expression during lymphocyte activation by drugs and chemicals; mechanism for immune modulation by cannabinoid compounds

Cheryl Rockwell, Ph.D.
Associate Professor *
Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology

Location: B346 Life Sciences
Phone: (517) 884-6692
Email: rockwelc@msu.edu

Fields of Interest: The Rockwell lab studies the mechanisms that regulate immune cell polarization and activation as well as the subsequent downstream immune responses.

Patricia Ganey, Ph.D.
Professor *
Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology

Location: 214 Food Safety Toxicology
Phone: (517) 432-1761
Email: ganey@msu.edu

Fields of Interest: Dr. Ganey's research focuses on understanding mechanisms by which inflammation modulates responses to chemicals. Of particular interest are chemicals, including drugs, that damage liver.
