About Hanson Lab
- The underlying causes, pathophysiology, and potential treatments for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), a life-limiting disease with 65 million victims worldwide.
- Disruption of the plasma metabolome and proteome
- Dysfunction in the immune system
- Altered signaling between cells mediated by extracellular vesicles
- Development of diagnostic biomarkers
The Hanson lab is part of the Center for Enervating NeuroImmune Disease, where more information about our research and collaborations on ME/CFS can be found.
- Biological processes in the plant genome-containing organelles, chloroplasts and mitochondria.
- The mechanism of C-to-U RNA editing
- Genetic engineering of the carbon-fixing enzyme Rubisco for improved photosynthesis during climate change
- Improving photosynthesis by exploiting a cyanobacterial strategy for CO2 concentration
The Hanson laboratory is located on the third floor of Cornell University's modern and well-equipped Biotechnology Building.
Our lab welcomes all types of humans as members. We strive for inclusion of a diverse set of individuals, united in their desire to make scientific discoveries to benefit society and to communicate them to the world.
Graduate students from three Fields may join the lab:
