The global environment will continue to experience an increase in political and economic turmoil. This will result in regional instability, failed states, asymmetric conflict, and global terrorism. My research project explores the individual leadership competences of international judges, prosecutors, and court administrators at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Weather usually arrives in the Keweenaw from the west, but there are no weather stations along the windward shore of the peninsula to monitor current conditions. To improve our understanding of regional climate conditions, we plan to expand our existing environmental monitoring network.
Cancer is caused by genes that were originally "good" genes that have turned "bad". Every organism needs these genes to develop from an egg into an adult, but when they mutate, they cause tumor development and growth. Fruit flies and humans share these genes and consequently also the cancer-causing genes. We will use fruit flies to study how cancer genes communicate with each other to form tumors.
