    My lab studies mechanisms of gene regulation involved in neuronal plasticity and behavior in health and disease. We integrate cellular and behavioral studies with transcriptomic and epigenomic measurements at tissue- and cell type-specific level. Currently, we are focusing on the neurobiology of substance use disorders and neuropsychiatric disorders. The identification and manipulation of gene regulatory mechanisms in the brain may enhance our basic understanding of brain function and open the door to new treatments for brain diseases.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
