About the lab

Our goal is to discover safe and effective treatments for brain diseases. Over the years, we have used a common basic strategy for doing so:

  • Doing fundamental research to identify a previously unsuspected control mechanism involving brain chemistry
  • Confirming that this newly discovered mechanism is at work in the human brain
  • Identifying a disease in which this mechanism goes awry
  • Developing and testing potential treatments based on these discoveries
