Invasive species pose a unique threat to native species and habitat through direct and indirect competition of resources. Management of invasive species depends on precise identification of their current range and knowledge of how they spread. This project will utilize Plantescope Satellite Imagery to identify the presence of Callery Pear, an invasive ornamental tree species

Genomic data are widely available for investigating phenotypes that impact both human and animal health. Although the investigation of human health often begins with model organisms, genomics technologies and software are often initially developed with only the human genome in mind, severely limiting their comparative applicability. Translational research requires robust systems-focused, or “One Health,” solutions

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a lifelong chronic disease characterized by the absolute or near-absolute loss of insulin. For affected individuals, management of T1D is an unremitting challenge that involves constant blood glucose monitoring and lifelong administration and titration of exogeneous insulin. Unfortunately, findings from decades of research have not yet comprehensively translated into substantially
