The Corthals Lab Page
At CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice and SUNY Stony Brook Medicine

Our lab has four current topics of research:

  1. The etiology, epigenetics and ecology of infectious and autoimmune diseases, using DNA and proteomics-based epidemiology

  2. Human and non-human evolutionary history (sensory system, co-evolution host/parasites, evolution of metabolism - with the Davalos lab at SBU Ecology and Evolution)

  3. Improving molecular and histomorphological methods and protocols of forensic investigations of highly decomposed and skeletal material (with Dr. Nick Petraco and Dr. Peter Diaczuk, John Jay College of Criminal Justice)

  4. The investigation of new methods of point-of-care (PoC) diagnostic and vaccine delivery for use in resource limited countries (with Médecins sans frontières - Doctors without Borders).
