Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. O'Hara's research aims to investigate how cognitive information processing deficits subserve affective symptoms in psychiatric disorders, and interact with key brain networks integral to these disorders. To do so, she has implemented a translational, interdisciplinary program that encompasses cellular models, brain and behavioral assays of affective and cognitive information processing systems in psychiatric disorders across the lifespan.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research lab focuses on the pathologic classification and mechanistic understanding of hematopoietic diseases. We leverage our expertise in computational pathology, digital pathology and molecular pathology to study diseases such as Castleman disease, acute myeloid leukemia, and T- and B-cell disorders. There are current research opportunities available for students, fellows and faculty scholars in my laboratory.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab uses the skin to answer questions about epithelial stem cell biology, differentiation and carcinogenesis using genomics, genetics, and cell biological techniques. We have studied how hedgehog signaling regulates regeneration and skin cancer, and how tumors evolve to develop resistance. We study the mechanisms of early human skin development using human embryonic stem cells. These fundamentals studies provide a greater understanding of epithelial biology and novel disease therapeutics.
