Gene Expression in Schizophrenia
Department of Psychiatry
8130A MRB III
We are a productive, NIH-funded laboratory at the Department of Psychiatry and Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development at Vanderbilt University. We believe that the successful researcher should work hard, be smart, plan ahead, be honest, play by the rules, respect co-workers and have a happy and fulfilling private life outside the work environment. Major lab interest include: 1) Gene expression profile of schizophrenia, 2) Animal models of psychiatric disorders, 3) Effects of environmental exposure on gene expression, 4) Neuroprotection by activity and 5) Transcriptome changes across human brain disorders.
