Murat O. Balabanís research is devoted to developing better ways to process and inspect food and agricultural products. He has developed a new way of "cold pasteurizing" orange juice that preserves its flavor while assuring its safety, and he is using computer vision and electronic noses to evaluate the freshness and safety of seafood and other products.
Dr. Edward R. Block studies the pathophysiology of the pulmonary vasculature with special emphasis on the lung vascular endothelium. Recently, Block has been studing regulation of nitric oxide production by lung vascular endothelial cells.
Dov Borovsky studies the mechanisms that control egg development and digestion in mosquitoes. His work has resulted in the purification and sequencing of a unique hormone that can be used in nature to control mosquito larvae.
Michael Burridge is a veterinarian and parasitologist who specializes in development of innovative methods to control ticks and tickborne diseases, particularly heartwater.
Kenneth Campbell is an agricultural engineer who specializes in hydrology and water quality of agricultural watersheds with a goal of optimizing agricultural productivity while maintaining environmentally sustainable agroecosystems.
Dr. Robert D. Christensenís research focuses on blood diseases that occur among newborn infants.
Caroline Constantís research focuses on relationships among architecture, landscape design and the "decorative" arts during the early 20th century.
Thomas Cotterís teaching and research interests primarily focus upon domestic and international intellectual property law. Cotter employs economic analysis to study, critique and predict the effect of changes in the rules relating to intellectual property.
Joel Demskiís work stresses the view that accounting, in its various forms and applications, is an information source with unusual qualities, such as that it is typically audited.
Don Dickson has specialized in an array of research projects including biological control of plant-parasitic nematodes, finding alternatives for methyl bromide and management of nematodes on agronomic crops.
Ronald Formisanoís research focuses mainly on the history of populist movements in the United States from the American Revolution to the 1990s.
Curt Hannah specializes in the molecular mechanisms of starch biosynthesis. Hannah is using genetic manipulation to enhance the starch content in cereal seeds.
Linda Honís research focuses on gender and diversity issues in public relations, as well as public relations measurement.
Brian Iwataís research focuses on disorders of learning and behavior in individuals with mental retardation and related disabilities, particularly the syndrome known as "Self-Injurious Behavior" (SIB), a chronic disorder characterized by behavior such as hitting, scratching and biting whose prevalence is approximately 15 percent among those with severe/profound mental retardation and autism.
Maureen Keller-Wood is interested in physiologic and endocrine adaptations to pregnancy, particularly the control of blood pressure and volume in the pregnant mother and in the maturing fetus.
Doug Levey has made his mark in ecology by studying interactions between fruits and fruit-eating birds viewed both from the plantís and the birdís perspective.
Sheng Liís major research accomplishments are in the areas of quantum well infrared photodetectors and low-cost manufacturing technology for thin-film solar cells. Liís team is creating super-thin solar cells that make their use to generate solar power more economically feasible.
Ramon Littell specializes in statistical applications in agriculture and natural resources. His major collaborations in recent years include environmental impact studies of phosphogypsum application and bioavailability of nutrients.
Nils Ingvar Magnusson is associate director for clinical studies at the UF Periodontal Disease Research Center, whose major objectives are to develop new ways of diagnosing, treating and preventing periodontal diseases. He is an internationally-recognized expert in periodontology and has been working with a number of major companies to test and develop new oral care products.
Nicholas Muzyczka studies the molecular biology of adeno-associated virus (AAV) as a gene therapy vehicle for delivering good copies of genes to individuals suffering from hereditary disease, such as cystic fibrosis.
Ammon Peckís recent diabetes research has demonstrated that a complete functional organ can be grown in vitro from a single-stem cell and that such artificially grown tissues can totally reverse insulin-dependent diabetes. Peck also researches the role of a beneficial bacteria called Oxalobacter formigenes in the development of kidney stones.
Jorge Pena is an entomologist who specializes in the biology and ecology of insects and mites associated with tropical fruit crops as well as tropical vegetables and ornamentals.
Scott K. Powers specializes in the effects of muscular exercise on both cardiac and skeletal muscle.
Ann Progulske-Fox is a molecular microbiologist whose work has focused primarily on the mechanisms of bacteria that cause human periodontal disease.
Robert Ray is a leader in the field of film studies. He has written numerous highly regarded books on film studies, including A Certain Tendency of the Hollywood Cinema, 1930-1980 and The Avant-Garde Meets Andy Hardy.
Jonathan Shuster is renowned as a scholar in statistical methods for clinical trials and especially for the application of these methods to childhood cancer research.
David Silverman is widely known for his pioneering and creative studies of rapid proton transfer in carbonic anhydrase. He is applying principles learned to the catalytic mechanism of superoxide dismutase.
Rajiv Singh has made pioneering contributions in the fundamentals and technical applications of laser-solid interactions in materials ranging from microelectronics to pharmaceutics.
Nan Smith's art employs traditional and progressive casting and mold-making techniques for ceramics, often at large scale, and airbrush painting on ceramic sculpture. Smith's installations incorporate life-sized, hyper-real ceramic figures set within tableaux formed by beautifully crafted metal and wooden constructions.
Stephen Smith's research focuses on special-education teacher issues such as attrition and the efficacy of behavioral interventions for students with significant behavioral and emotional problems.
David Steadmanís research on the biogeography of birds in Oceana and the West Indies has revolutionized thinking concerning the endemic bird life on islands and the role of humans in their extinction and extirpation.
Joyce Stechmillerís work on the effects of enteral feeling on gut mucosal integrity, infection rates, cortisol secretion and cytokine release has direct consequences for critically ill patients.
Stanley Suís research focuses on an Internet-based scalable information infrastructure, which integrates Web services with business events, rules and process managements, and automated negotiation services for supporting e-commerce.
Charles Telescoís research activities have focused on forging a world-class laboratory at UF for the development of cutting-edge astronomical infrared cameras and spectrometers and using that instrumentation at the worldís leading astronomical observatories to understand the formation and evolution of stars and planets.
