The Neurobiology labs are interested in how neurons and glia are formed and interact, and how neural connections are generated, maintained, and repaired to allow the brain and spinal cord to function. We focus on several different aspects of neural connectivity in the context of development and diseases. We use a variety of systems including vertebrate and invertebrate models, and apply novel technologies in molecular biology, cell biology, and physiology spanning from molecular to cellular to organismal work.  Several of the labs in this group are part of the Center for Childhood Neurotherapeutics and the South Carolina Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders (SCAND) consortium, which brings opportunities for intra-departmental, inter-departmental, and state-wide collaborations."

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
