Toni Kazic

Dr. Kazic is working on methods to infer the structure of complex networks using the disease lesion mimic mutants of maize as a model system. Her work has also included the development of an architecture for community query, deposit, review and curation of information on biochemical reactions, and the analysis of extant reaction networks.

Bradley Ferguson

Dr. Ferguson is currently studying the association between immune, endocrine, and psychophysiological markers of stress and gastrointestinal disorders in those with autism spectrum disorder. He is also leading the psychophysiological biomarker assessment for predictors of response to medications, and also the relationship to aberrant behaviors.
