About

MY LABORATORY is located in the Civitan International Research Center (CIRC),Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurobiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).

My laboratory’s primary research interest is on understanding how different parts of the brain communicate with other parts via a variety of chemical signals, and how this communication is disrupted in schizophrenia. Our current focus is on studying the expression of the genes encoding the receptors for the neurotransmitters, dopamine and glutamate, within individual cells in the nervous system.
