We are an inclusive group of passionate and curious scientists committed to advancing our understanding of the brain, both to improve patient care and to chase down the answers to what makes us who we are. Our goal is to foster a warm, supportive, collaborative and creative lab community focused on learning, growth and teamwork. We welcome diverse voices, experiences and perspectives and are committed to supporting underrepresented scholars.

Mouse teammates

Our work requires us to form trusting and caring partnerships with mice. All team members are selected for their demonstrated care, respect, and ability to interact gently with our animal partners. We train mice to play games over the course of weeks to months, forming longitudinal relationships with them. We honor and value our mouse partners and believe we have immense duty to ensure they live their best lives.
