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.
Dr. Wang is involved in several projects that aim to investigate the pathological function of the novel protein variants identified from neurodevelopmental patients and to explore how to promote functional axon regeneration after traumatic brain injury or neurodegeneration.
Kevin Bryan is a sophomore undergraduate student at the University of Pennsylvania pursuing a degree in Neuroscience. He is interested in the mechanisms regulating neural regeneration, and the world of neurodegenerative disorders fascinates him. He plans to go to medical school in the future.
