Paul A. Lindahl - Principal Investigator

Paul Lindahl

I grew up in Chicago where I became fascinated with biochemistry in high school. I attended North Park College, also in Chicago, and majored in chemistry. I attended graduate school at MIT and did a post-doc at the University of Minnesota. In 1988 I joined the faculty in the Chemistry Department at Texas A&M University, where I have been ever since. In 1996 I married Lora Anne Schneider. We have three kids, including Laena, Karl and Grace.

Michael Moore

Michael Moore

I was raised in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, a small little town where nothing ever happened. I graduated from Gannon University in Erie, PA in May 2011 with my B.S. in Chemistry and academic minors in Biology and Philosophy. After completing my undergrad, I took a year off, working as a chemist at a local industry called LORD Corporation. Although the big boy paychecks provided by industry were more than generous, I decided to pursue my Ph.D. in Chemistry at Texas A&M and will be starting my first year in the Fall of 2012. My research is yet to be determined. Chances are it'll involve purifying low molecular weight metal species from isolated yeast and human cell mitos employing isoelectric focusing methods and characterizing said complexes using biophysical techniques.

Joshua Wofford

Joshua Wofford

I was born in Carrollton, TX, and moved to Aubrey, TX at a young age, where I finished through high school. I graduated from the University of North Texas in May 2013 with a Bachelor's of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor's of Science in Physics. I joined the Ph.D. Program in Fall 2013 and joined the Lindahl lab that October. My research involves using mathematical modeling and biophysical characterization of yeast cells to understand the mechanisms involved in the metabolism in iron.

Cody Lupardus

I was born in Houston and raised in Alvin, Texas. I obtained a BS in Molecular & Cell Biology with a minor in Mathematics at Texas A&M University in 2014. I started graduate school in the fall of 2015 and joined Lindahl’s lab in December. My research projects right now involve mathematical modeling of iron trafficking in yeast cells as well as experimentally testing the predictions. Potential projects include determination of compounds exported from yeast mitochondria.

Joel Ferrer

Joel Ferrer

I was born and raised in a suburb of Houston, Texas called Clear Lake. Currently, I am pursuing a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences. After graduation, my goal is pursue a Ph.D in a biochemistry related field and continue to conduct medical research and possibly teach as well. When I'm not being academic, I love to be with friends, go golfing, and play video games. Currently, my research focuses on low-molecular-mass metals in the Gottigen mini-pig brain as it relates to neurodegenerative disorders especially Parkinson's Disease.
