We study the olfactory system to address fundamental questions in sensory neurobiology and molecular genetics.

About Us

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.
