Dworkin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Zoology at
MSU. His laboratory studies the genetic basis of phenotypic variation
Tony Frankino is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Houston. His current research interests revolve around elucidation of the intrinsic and external forces that shape the evolution of complex traits, focusing primarily on the evolution of morphology in holometabolous insects.
Christen Mirth is a developmental
physiologist at the Gulbenkian Institute in Lisbon, Portugal. Her
research concentrates on the hormonal regulation of growth,
differentiation and developmental timing.
Doug EmlenDoug Emlen is a Professor in the Division of Biological Sciences at the Univeristy of Montana. His research focuses on the evolution and development of bizarre, or extreme morphologies in insects.
is a Permanent Group Leader at the Institute of Population
Genetics, University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna, Austria. He
studies the genetic and physiological mechanisms underlying variation
in life history traits, in particular aging.
Peter Bates is a
Professor of Mathematics at MSU. He is interested in the application of
mathematics to a variety of biological problems.
