The Nicholas Lab is a brand new research group in the Department of Molecular Biology & Biochemistry at the University of California, Irvine. Our lab blurs the boundaries between the disciplines of immunology, metabolism, and endocrinology to discover the mechanisms that drive endocrine disease. We are actively recruiting motivated and creative students to break the confines of disciplinary science and begin new frontiers to determine how the immune system interacts with metabolism and reproduction using a combination of molecular and cellular biology, transcriptomics, transgenic mouse models, cytokine profiling, and flow cytometry. Our ambition is to create working models of immunologic processes that drive disease to pinpoint novel therapeutic interventions for type 2 diabetes and polycystic ovary syndrome.
The Nicholas Lab believes “Happy People do Great Science!” and embraces the journey of scientific discovery. We are dedicated to cultivating an inclusive, collaborative, and creative research community that encourages bold ideas and supports everyone being their authentic self. We are one a mission to make the world better one experiment at a time, but we don’t forget to have fun along the way.
