Welcome to the Bozza lab!
We are using the olfactory system as a model to address fundamental questions in sensory neurobiolgy and molecular genetics.
The lab is currently studying the molecular and circuit basis for innate and learned olfactory behaviors in mammals, and the mechanisms underlying monoallelic expression of olfactory receptor genes. To this end, we use a variety of methods including genetic engineering in mice, transcriptomics, in vivo optical imaging, optogenetics, electrophysiology and behavior.
The lab welcomes graduate and undergraduate students who are interested in studying molecular neurobiology, gene regulation, and/or behavior.
