Dr. Lesley Davenport, professor of Chemistry at Brooklyn College and Executive Officer of the Doctoral program in Biochemistry at the Graduate Center. Dr. Davenport directs the Center for Fluorescence Spectroscopy in Brooklyn College, uses fluorescence spectroscopic approaches for investigating interactions between complex biomolecules.
Dr. Vicki Flaris is Associate Professor of Chemistry at Bronx Community College. Her research focuses on polymer and material science, specifically looking at blends and alloys and focusing on environmentally friendly membranes.
Dr. Myriam Sarachik, Distinguished Professor of Physics at City College, has published extensively on her work in superconductivity, disordered metallic alloys and metal-insulator transitions in doped semiconductors, among other areas.
Dr. Corinne Michels, Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Biology at Queens College, utilizes the genetic model eukaryote Saccharomyces cerevisiae, baker's and brewer's yeast, and molecular genetic analysis tools.
Dr. Marie Filbin, Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences at Hunter College, investigates the role of MAG and myelin in preventing axonal regeneration after injury, devising molecular approaches to overcoming these inhibitors.
Dr. Neepa Maitra, Associate Professor of Physics at Hunter College, studies time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) to expand areas in condensed matter physics, quantum chemistry, and quantum physics.
Dr. Jill Bargonetti, Professor of Biological Sciences at Hunter College, works to determine if DNA damage caused by various chemotherapeutic drugs (alone and in combination) are able to bring about differential activation of the p53 target genes as well as activate alternative cell death pathways, critical to cancer research.
Dr. Mandë Holford, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Hunter College, focuses on reconstructing the evolutionary history of venomous marine gastropods, and investigates their toxins as biochemical tools for characterizing cellular communication in the nervous system and as potential drug development targets.
