In This Section
Dr. Song works to elucidate the cellular and molecular basis governing the formation, maintenance, and function of neural circuits under physiological and pathological conditions, using both Drosophila and mammalian models.
With a background in neural development, neural circuits and behavior, fly and mouse genetics, injury and tumor models, Dr. Song offers a unique skillset and perspective for addressing physiological questions in developmental/functional neurobiology, neurological diseases and tumorigenesis.
