L. Ryan Baugh
Associate Professor of Biology

We use the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans as model to investigate how animals cope with fluctuations in food availability. We are interested in the signaling pathways and gene regulatory mechanisms that enable this worm to reversibly arrest development and endure starvation. We are interested in adaptation to nutrient stress over different time scalse, including nongenetic inheritance and multigenerational phenotypic plasticity.
