Postmortem interval (PMI) is a common method to estimate time period of death in forensic science. Carrion insects such as blowflies are applied to predict PMI based on the age of immature stages (from eggs to pupae). However, insect developmental rate in a human corpse has never been measured. In Mayson’s research, transgenic blowflies would be made to accurately recognize age of carrion insects based on the detection of fluorescent protein in maggots.

Over 50% of HIV infected patients also suffer from chronic pain conditions. Despite evidence suggesting that opioids enhance their chronic pain and leads to increased neuronal damage, Opioids are still the predominant prescribed analgesic. Marissa’s research aims to further elucidate how opioids increase the neuronal damage and search for alternative pain management approaches.

Jonathan Tabares

TBBS Fellow in Dr. Jin He’s Lab

Jonathan currently conducts research in Dr. Jin He’s Laboratory where he focuses on single molecule cellular biophysics. Jonathan investigates high-resolution multimodal imaging and sensing to explore biochemical changes associated with cell function. For example, using scanning ion conductance microscopy to image several cell activities on the cell membrane.
