Brief Description of Research
1. Neurobiology
2. Molecular Genetics
3. Protein Engineering

The mission of the lab is to develop and use Drosophila behavioral neurogenetics methods to better understand basic brain functions that are disrupted in common mental disorders. The lab has technical expertise in genetics, behavior experiments, instrumentation development, neuroanatomy and related methods. We are particularly interested in aversive associative learning and related defense behaviors, including the role of conserved genes involved in these processes that will help us understand human brain function and dysfunction. We welcome applications from students interested in neuroscience and basic brain mechanisms.
