Aaron Hernday
Professional Title: 
Assistant Professor, School of Natural Sciences
Bio: 
Professor Hernday's lab is engaged in understanding and reengineering the regulatory systems that control microbial behavior. Part of the lab is currently focused on developing new and improved genetic tools that will enable precision genome engineering in Coccidioides immitis, the causal agent of valley fever. A long term goal is to understand how the Cocciodioides lifecycle is controlled, and how we can interfere with this complex behavior to treat or prevent disease.
