Our laboratory seeks to understand the molecular mechanisms that lead to axon degeneration and the diseases that stem from this degenerative process.
Our laboratory is interested in the neurogenetics and genomics of behavior in health and disease. We utilize a variety of techniques spanning from human molecular genetics and informatics to mouse behavioral neuroscience and neuroanatomy.
We are broadly interested in the genetic basis of evolutionary change and specifically interested in the role of changes in gene regulation.
The primary mission of the Division of Statistical Genomics is to provide leadership
and promote excellence in statistical genomics and genetic epidemiology research
