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.
