Projects are constantly changing & moving in new directions -
check out our preprints to see what we're currently pondering.
Our work centers around understanding neuropeptides as unique
signaling molecules in the brain. We investigate interactions between neuropeptides and neurotransmitters, how these systems are altered by things like biological sex, stress, drug exposure, and age, and how we can target peptide systems.
CAN WE ALTER PEPTIDE
can we change the ways peptides act in vivo? can we target them?
WHY DO PEPTIDES
DO WHAT THEY DO?
What events alter peptidergic transmission? why and when?
WHAT DO PEPTIDES DO?
how do peptides signal and under what conditions? and why?
