Associate Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, Cockrell School of Engineering
halper@che.utexas.edu
+1 512 471 4417

Expertise: Our group focuses on engineering biology to produce organic molecules of interest such as biofuels, commodity and specialty chemicals and protein pharmaceuticals.  Specifically, our lab alters cells and "hijacks" the basic metabolism to convert cellular systems into industrially-relevant biochemical factories.  We utilize a variety of host systems including microbial (eg. Eschericia coli), fungal (eg. the yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Yarrowia lipolytica), and mammalian cells (eg. Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells and human HEK293).  To accomplish these tasks, traditional pathway engineering approaches are merged with novel synthetic biology tools, protein engineering strategies, systems biology paradigms and applied genetic engineering capabilities.  Our research group focuses on the integration and implementation of these tools and knowledge for the design, production, and elicitation of phenotypes relevant to biotechnological processes and medical interest.  In addition, we are heavily invested in developing novel synthetic biology approaches aimed at increasing our capacity to engineer cells.

Expertise: Dr. Jowers directs two major grant projects, including the Texas Initiatives for Children's Activity & Nutrition (I-CAN!) project, and the Walk Texas! Project. Texas I-CAN! is an obesity prevention project that aims to increase both physical activity and healthy eating in elementary school children. This project is currently funded through the National Institutes of Health/ Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center for Child Development.The goal is to train elementary school teachers to incorporate physical activity into their academic lessons daily and to evaluate the corresponding physical activity changes and academic impact on the participating children. This is a 5-year project that will recruit 30 elementary schools within Central Texas. Dr. Jowers was part of the creation and refinement of this program since 2001 and has extensive experience working with children, elementary school teachers, and independent school districts. Walk Texas! is funded by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS)/Texas Diabetes Council/Program to provide diabetes prevention and technical assistance/expertise to state-funded community diabetes prevention projects. Additionally, Dr. Jowers manages the online reporting system, termed the Program Management and Tracking System &#40;PMATS&#41;, for the Texas Department of State and Health Services. This system tracks clinical outcomes across various programs (physical activity, nutrition, diabetes self management) to determine the impact of the programs on diabetes prevention and control across the state of Texas.

The effectiveness of the program has been shown using a randomized controlled trial, and is now being taught all over the world. Dr. Neff is currently examining the effectiveness of the Mindful Self-Compassion program, including brief versions of the program to help address burnout among teachers and health care workers. Additionally, Dr. Neff is investigating the link between self-compassion and compassion for others.

She has most frequently focused on how the provision of choice and support for autonomy may impact motivation and support other achievement related outcomes. Dr. Patall has also studied how school time and the activities of children outside of school influence their academic achievement. Topics she has studied have included the effects of extended school time and activities such as parent involvement in schoolwork, homework, and afterschool programs. Finally, Dr. Patall is interested in the development and use of meta-analytic methods in social science research.
