Research Summary

My lab is committed to helping patients with neuropsychiatric disease through translational research. We are focused on understanding the mechanisms by which genes and stress affect risk for depression, cognitive dysfunction, and other disorders, and how these factors interact with development across the lifespan, from birth to old age. We believe that such research will identify new strategies for treatment and prevention.

Extensive Research Description

My lab is engaged in a number of projects and there are ample opportunities for students to get involved with this work. Ongoing projects include work in the areas of basic molecular neuroscience, molecular genetics, behavioral neuroscience, and patient-orientated clinical research.
