Dr. Menon is a molecular geneticist by training and has a special interest in human genetics, human health, wellness, and human disease. He was a member of the team that identified the genes for two different cancer syndromes and, more recently,
is one of the founding members of the medical sciences program. His interests outside science include philosophy, education, classic rock, and motorcycles.

PhD: Rutgers UniversityMS: Rutgers UniversityBA: University of California, BerkeleyDr. Wieczorek is a molecular geneticist whose research focuses is on understanding cardiac
function and disease. More specifically, he explores the molecular pathways in the development of hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathies. He teaches in the Fundamentals of Molecular Genetics course and the Human Medical Genetics course. Outside
of work, he enjoys reading and cooking, especially preparing the vegetables that he grows in his garden.

As a microbiologist, Dr. Askew is fascinated with the entire microbial world and has a lab dedicated to understanding how some species of fungi cause human disease. His unplaceable accent is a result of living in three countries: England, Canada,
and the United States. He’s a big fan of cooking and enjoys studying Italian and French. Each fall, Dr. Askew leads undergraduate students on a study tour to Paris, France where they visit the Institut Pasteur and get to know the city.

A physiologist, Dr. Mackenzie was educated in Scotland and trained as a postdoctoral fellow at UCLA and Harvard. Dr. Mackenzie’s research program revolves around iron transport and homeostasis—the processes by which the human body regulates
systemic iron levels to ensure a sufficient supply for red-blood cell production and other vital roles that iron plays. Iron deficiency is the most prevalent micronutrient deficiency worldwide. Meanwhile, several common hereditary conditions (including
hereditary hemochromatosis and beta-thalassemia) are associated with iron overload, which leads to toxic damage to vital organs. Research in the Mackenzie lab is focused on the molecular physiology of iron transporters (DMT1, ferroportin, ZIP14) that
are responsible for iron absorption, iron uptake into specific cell types, and iron recycling from aging red-blood cells. These transporters are potential drug targets for the treatment of iron disorders. Work in the Mackenzie Lab utilizes transport
assays in RNA-injectedXenopusoocytes expressing iron transporters, and examining iron transport and homeostasis in genetically modified mouse models. Dr. Mackenzie oversees undergraduate research experiences for MSBP students who have access to cutting-edge
biomedical research labs at UC College of Medicine and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. He directs the Biomedical Research Rotation course, the two-semester senior Biomedical Research Capstone course, and Statistics & Experimental Design
for the Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Mackenzie is the deputy editor-in-chief ofAdvances in Physiology Education, a leading international journal that promotes and disseminates educational scholarship in order to enhance teaching and learning of physiology
and medical sciences.

Dr. Kirley's laboratory is currently collaborating on a therapeutic anti-cocaine antibody project with the laboratory of Dr. Andrew Norman. We have characterized the post-translational modifications and analyzed the heterogeneity of this monoclonal antibody,
as well as developed methods for generation and purification of antibody fragments, including the therapeutically relevant Fab fragment. We also developed fluorescence quenching methods to measure binding affinities of the antibody and its fragments
for cocaine and its metabolites and derivatives. We are currently characterizing the stability of the intact antibody, crystalizing the Fab fragment, and determining the protein and glycan heterogeneities and post-translational modifications of this
monoclonal antibody to seek FDA approval for human clinical trials.

Having always enjoyed science and teaching, Dr. Haworth went to college with the goal to become a high school physics teacher. He ended up loving his physics classes so much he continued on to a PhD. With a dual interest in research, Dr. Haworth got his
degree in applied physics while doing research in a radiology department. At UC, Dr. Haworth enjoys working in a clinical department (Internal Medicine- Cardiology) where he pursues interdisciplinary research and brings a unique perspective into the
classroom. Outside of the lab, Dr. Haworth spends time with his wife and two young girls. He’s a big Michigan Wolverine sports fan and enjoys downhill skiing and trail running.

Jenny grew up in southeastern Wisconsin, where most of her family still resides. She attended St. Norbert College in De Pere, WI, where she enjoyed competing as a NCAA student-athlete in basketball (1 year) and cross country and track and field
(4 years). Upon graduating, she competed professionally with a post-collegiate Olympic development program sponsored by Brooks Running, Inc., in Michigan. Following a decision to end her professional running career, Jenny pursued her Masters in Higher
Education Leadership and Athletic Administration at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, where she also helped coach the cross country and track and field teams. She found her way to the University of Cincinnati in 2019, working in Student-Athlete
Support Services for two years, and she looks forward to calling Cincinnati home for the foreseeable future. She’s passionate about helping/empowering students to be at their best in all facets of their lives. In her spare time, Jenny still
enjoys running half and full marathons, as well as weight lifting, yoga, coffee, traveling, watching sports (go Packers, Brewers, Bucks, and Bearcats!), and spending time with friends and family (including her husband Mike, who’s a Cincinnati
