Luigi Strizzi, M.D., Ph.D.

As Associate Professor in the College of Graduate Studies, Department of Pathology at Midwestern University I have the privilege of teaching Systemic Pathology in the Basic Sciences Programs to students enrolled in the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine (CCMO), College of Dental Medicine-Illinois (CDMI) and Chicago College of Optometry (CCO). In addition to my didactic responsibilities, I serve as a member of several university committees and intramural and extramural grant research review panels. I also continue to work in the field of cancer research with the aim of finding novel ways for improving diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Since my research activity requires continuous updates related to my specific area of interest in molecular diagnosis and therapy, my teaching responsibilities provide a unique platform for transmitting novel findings to our future health care professionals with emphasis on the translational aspects of molecular pathology in precision medicine.

Martin Szul, Ph.D.

Principal investigator and instructor driven to develop our understanding of the evolution of virulence factors, selective pressures on these factors, and their underlying regulatory mechanisms. As a PI, my research seeks to identify gaps in our collective knowledge in these fields using a combination of traditional bench top and biochemical techniques while selectively applying ‘omics techniques to delve further into their underlying mechanisms. Currently my research is centered on identification of arthropod (e.g. mosquitos, brine shrimp) virulence factors and their expression by Chromobacterium spp. As an instructor I am fueled by my student's sympathy laughs as I strive to integrate seminal research from the golden age of microbiology and discuss of the forces of selection and evolution on biological mechanisms.
