Xiu-Feng (Henry) Wan

Dr. Wan’s long-term career goals are to understand how zoonotic pathogens (especially influenza A viruses) emerge and re-emerge at the animal-human interface and to improve the effectiveness of the influenza vaccines in disease prevention and control by developing and applying systems biology based translational approaches. Translational systems biology is an integrated, multi-scale, evidence-based approach that

Sonal Patil

I am a health services researcher and family physician interested in improving individual and population-level health outcomes in low-resource communities (rural/underserved). I aim to identify capacity for “upstream” community-based interventions to create sustainable integrated clinic-community partnership interventions. I have experience conducting systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and pilot quantitative and qualitative studies.

Cheryl Rosenfeld

Rosenfeld specializes in studying the effects of maternal diet on offspring, exploring how the in-utero environment can shape risks for later disease. Her research with mice has yielded majorbreakthroughs. She has determined that an energy-rich maternal diet will result in more male mouse pups, while a restricted-calorie diet produces daughtersmore frequently. She also established a
