Dr. Chelsea Epler will be working in the Bullitt lab investigating type III secretion and virus replication.
Dr. Alan Huang is a biochemist and molecular biologist who has gained biophysical expertise during the last ten years in the Wang lab.
Dr. Shigeru Komaba, also in the Coluccio laboratory, is studying the role of myosin I in the association of transporters with the actin cytoskeleton at the cell membrane.
Dr. Hiroshi Tokuo will be working with Dr. Coluccio investigating the role of myosin I in cell-cell contact; and myosin X in the formation of filopodia.
