Research at the Corthals Lab investigates biological and biochemical processes and pathways using molecular, morphological (including histology), evolutionary, epidemiological as well as socio-economic and cultural data.
Using both molecular and morphological approaches, our research program pushes the boundaries of technology and theoritical knowledge for applications in pathology, general and field medicine, evolutionary and conservation biology, biomedical informatics and engineering, forensic science, criminal justice, and anthropology.
Our research foci are:
- Metabolic processes in infectious diseases and neurodegeneration
- Point of Care (PoC) and Diagnostic (Dx) technology for infectious, non-infectious (e.g. cancer, blood panels, etc.), emergent and neglected diseases to increase access to medicine/testing in Low & Middle Income Countries (LMICs)
- Trauma and disease morphology and molecular markers in forensic cases
