I have numerous project opportunities for students who wish to participate in research. B.S., M.S., Boise State University; Ph.D., Ohio University

Mike Husak

Chair, Department of Agriculture, Biology and Health Sciences
Sciences Complex 139C
(580) 581-2374
michaelh@cameron.edu

I am interested in the population ecology of birds, vertebrate natural history, and animal distribution patterns. In recent years have mentored student research focusing on a variety of topics including avian behavior and ecology, mammal habitat selection, and reptile distribution.

Associate Professors

Matt Van Sant

Associate Professor
Sciences Complex 137
(580) 581-2349
mvansant@cameron.edu

I am interested in physiological ecology with a focus on adaptations for dealing with abiotic challenges.

Danyelle Lee

Associate Professor
Sciences Complex 138A
(580) 591-8009
dalee@cameron.edu

I primarily study bats and am interested in all aspects of their ecology, genetics, and evolutionary relationships. I also use molecular biology tools to study genetic variation of other populations of wildlife. Students in my lab are currently sequencing DNA of tumor suppressor genes in bats to compare them to human DNA sequence and potentially identify why bats do not get cancer like humans. B.S., Abilene Christian University; M.S., Angelo State University; Ph.D., Oklahoma State University

Assistant Professors

Antony Miller

Assistant Professor
Sciences Complex 138G
(580) 581-2277
anmiller@cameron.edu

I am interested in cell/cell interactions, and regulation of gene expression. I use cell lines to gain a better understanding of the changes in cell-to-cell communication, and the resulting changes in gene expression, that occur at cancer onset, disease progression, and during treatment. B.S., University of North Carolina; Ph.D., The Ohio State University

Cory Parks

Assistant Professor
Sciences Complex138L
(580) 591-8001
cparks@cameron.edu

My research background pertains to the physiological and behavioral response to drugs of abuse, primarily cannabis and its components such as THC, and how genetic variance contributes to response. I use genetically altered cell lines to expand upon this work, continuing investigation to differences in physiological response in regards to metabolism and protein receptor dynamics. B.S., Southeast Missouri State University; Ph.D., The University of Tennessee Health Science Center
