We aim to determine why women are more susceptible to AD, how mood disorders impact aging and disease, and how life experiences contribute to the aging brain. We aspire to be a translational lab using basic science to answer clinically driven questions.
transgenic AD mice, a diverse array of behavioral paradigms, microscopy, immediate-early gene tagging, optogenetics, and in vivo calcium imaging. We then compare our results in mice with large human datasets.
Our lab believes that science is for everyone and we will support students from all backgrounds. We seek to be collaborative, creative, and curious. Above all, we prioritize work-life balance and mental health with a welcoming environment and open communication.
