And yes, these are professors and faculty that you as an undergraduate are able to conduct research with!
Being a history of medicine student myself, I found the current research being conducted by associate professor Mark Borello to be quite interesting. Dr. Borello, a professor in the College of Biological Sciences' Department for Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior, just recently published a book on the history of the evolutionary debate. His book looks at a 20th century zoologist who defended the theory of group selection. A heavily debated theory at the time, Dr. Borello's book explores the sometime messy development of scienciftic theory. When studying the history of medicine as an undergraduate, I really enjoyed looking at the timeline of scientific theory. What we once was believed to be fact at sometime could be considered completely unorthodox 10, 15, or ever 20 years later. Very interesting.
