van Oers Lab

Children with in-born errors of immunity are prone to life-threatening viral, bacterial, and fungal infections. We study the genetic causes of their immune system problems. The research combines clinical insights from the patients and mouse models developed to genocopy the mutation.

Vega Lab

Dr. Vega and co-workers have discovered three other causes of high LDL. First, she found that some patients have abnormal LDL particles that cannot be removed from circulation because the abnormal LDL does not recognize the receptors. 

  • Gloria Lena Vega, Ph.D.
Biological Chemistry

Vernino Lab

Vernino Lab focuses on the mechanisms of autoimmune disorders of the nervous system. We use a variety of techniques including animal physiology, cellular electrophysiology, histology, and immunology. 

  • Steven Vernino, M.D., Ph.D.
Autoimmune neurology

Vinogradov Lab

The main focus of the Vinogradov Lab is developing MRI methods that are based on the intrinsic biochemical processes and physical properties of the tissue: chemical exchange rearrangements, molecular networks, and relaxation.

  • Elena Vinogradov, Ph.D.
Biomedical Engineering

Vitetta Lab

Our research efforts are currently focused in four areas of cancer research.

  • Ellen S. Vitetta, Ph.D.
Immunology

Volk Lab

The Volk Lab's research focuses on the hippocampus as they research how the brain balances dynamic learning and persistent memory.
