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.

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.

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

Location: 253 Food Safety
Phone: (517) 884-2057
Email: luyendyk@msu.edu

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]

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.
