Radulovic, Jelena

Radulovic, Jelena

Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

Bio

Dr. Radulovic studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms by which memories of stressful events contribute to anxiety- and depression-like behavior. Specifically, her interests lies in neuronal rece... [more]

Redei, Eva

Redei, Eva

Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (General Psychiatry)

Bio

Dr. Eva Redei conducts research in the following categories: biomarkers, stress hypersensitivity, depressive disorders, genetic vulnerability, epigenetic regulation, imprinted genes, neuroendocrinolog... [more]

Savas, Jeffrey N

Savas, Jeffrey N

Assistant Professor of Neurology (Behavioral Neurology), Medicine (Nephrology and Hypertension) and Pharmacology

Bio

My research interests are centered on elucidating the pathogenic mechanisms which drive synaptopathies and proteinopathies in the mammalian nervous system. As a first step, we use reductionist biochem... [more]

Shepherd, Gordon MG

Shepherd, Gordon MG

Professor of Neuroscience

Bio

Local synaptic circuits in motor-frontal cortex engage in neural operations underlying many aspects of cognition and behavior – motor control, executive functions, working memory, and more – yet circu... [more]

Swanson, Geoffrey T

Swanson, Geoffrey T

Professor of Pharmacology and Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences

Bio

My research focuses predominantly on understanding physiological processes mediated by glutamate receptors, which are signaling proteins that respond to glutamate, the predominant excitatory neurotran... [more]

Wang, Lei

Wang, Lei

Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

Bio

Dr. Lei Wang's lab research is focused on the development of multidimensional and multimodal neuroimaging biomarkers using the tools of computational anatomy. Working with collaborators from engineeri... [more]

Watterson, Daniel Martin

Watterson, Daniel Martin

Professor of Pharmacology

Bio

The elucidation of eukaryotic signal transduction pathways, the study of signal transduction pathway perturbation in disease or injury, and the utilization of this knowledgebase for rational drug disc... [more]

Wu, Jane Y

Wu, Jane Y

Professor of Neurology (Neuromuscular Disease)

Bio

My primary research interests are in molecular mechanisms of gene regulation, particularly those involved in neural development and neural degeneration. My lab is focusing on two areas, RNA regulation... [more]
