Welcome Cate!

The Heisler lab is excited to welcome Cate to this lab this spring. Cate is a passionate biology student who is eager to gain hands-on research experience. Cate will be focused on understanding how membrane cholesterol levels regulate bacterial pathogenesis of a variety of human pathogens.

Welcome Declan!

A big welcome is needed to our newest lab member, Declan. He is an freshman Biochemistry major with a personal interest in science and law and one day hopes to pursue both a PhD and JD to do patent law. While he will not have a defined project this semester, he will be exposed to everything the Heisler lab can do and we look forward to seeing evolve over the next three years.

First grant FUNDED!

The Heisler lab is excited to say that our inaugural grant, a Duquesne seed grant investigating dreaded diseases, has been funded! This will us to explore the role of proteins in the intracellular lifecycle of Listeria and establish a novel platform for exploring protein-protein interactions here at Duquesne.
