The Ferguson Lab, led by assistant professor at SUNY Fredonia, Dr. Ferguson, focuses on various pathways in Drosophila polarity and development,
and their suspected homologies to human regulation and disease pathogenesis. Dr. Ferguson studied cell and molecular biology, and genes and regulation,
at The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and studied as a postdoctoral fellow in molecular biology at Princeton University.
Both undergraduate and graduate students work under Dr. Ferguson on a variety of projects in cell and molecular biology and genetics.
Through these projects a wide arrange of laboratory techniques are implemented, including genetic engineering, DNA manipulation, plasmid
construction and transformation and bacterial cloning, confocal microscopy, Drosophila nutrition experimentation, confocal and fluorescent microscopy, and more.
