Department Name: ANATOMY AND STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY
The Hodgson lab is developing monomeric, single-chain Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based biosensors for Rho family small GTPases and their downstream targets. We most recently pioneered a multiple FRET biosensor technology in which we visualized two orthogonal FRET biosensors in the same cell at the same time. We develop these biosensors and apply them in real, hypothesis-driven biology research in our laboratory, including cancer invasion & metastasis, macrophage chemotaxis and other general directional cell motility.

Department Name: NEUROSCIENCE
The Ross lab studies neural circuit mechanisms governing the interaction of stress with fundamental motivated behavior, specifically focusing on the mechanisms of neuromodulators and hormones involved in dynamic homeostatic processes. We are interested in how these processes may underlie diseases of metabolism and mental health such as obesity or anorexia nervosa. Prior experience in at least one of these technical areas of expertise is preferred: calcium imaging/in vivo photometry, mouse behavioral tasks, molecular biology, high dimensional analyses of neuronal data (or biological data in general), electrophysiology, 2-photon microscopy, computer programming and electronics.

Department Name: NEUROSCIENCE
The Batista-Brito lab investigates how postnatal development of inhibitory function shapes the way information is processed in the brain in the context of health and disease. Cortical function depends on the adaptive function of brain areas comprised of many types of cells and synaptic connections that develop on a long timescale. During development, neural networks must grow from a state of zero connectivity to the precisely interconnected circuits characteristic of the adult brain. The activity of GABAergic inhibitory neurons during postnatal development is likely to mediate synaptic refinement, reducing synchrony and enhancing precision in the mature network. Accordingly, dysregulation of GABAergic interneurons has been linked to several neurodevelopmental disorders. We use a powerful combination of methods, including single-cell genetic profiling, mouse genetics, cell-type specific manipulation of neuronal activity, in vivo electrophysiology, in vivo 2-photon imaging, and behavioral analysis, in order to functionally dissect the developmental impact of specific sources of inhibition on cortical processing and perception. This research illuminates how cortical functions are altered in neurodevelopmental disorders, with particular focus opn schizophrenia and autism.
