HOW CAN WE HELP YOU? Call 1-800-TRY-CHOP
We are hiring!
We are always seeking motivated individuals with a strong interest in research, an open mindset to learn and collaborate, and a career goal to make a difference. Intrigued? Email Dr. Song at firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV, short summary of research, and three references (postdoc candidates).
The Song Lab's long-term goal is to elucidate the cellular and molecular basis governing the formation, maintenance, and function of neural circuits under physiological and pathological conditions, working with fly and mammalian models.
With a background in neural development, neural circuits and behavior, fly and mouse genetics, injury and neurodegeneration models, the Song Lab offers a unique skill set to achieve this goal.
Besides achieving excellence in scientific research, the Song Lab's other primary goal is to foster a collaborative and stimulating environment, in order to bring out each lab member's best potential to help them build on their own interest and to pave the way for their career development.
Meet the Song Lab team in their Lab Life video. Utilizing molecular targets identified in mechanistic studies, the Song Lab aims develop novel therapeutic strategies for patients with neural injury, stroke, and neurodegenerative diseases.
The Song Lab's research is focused in the following four areas:
- Elucidating the mechanisms underlying neural degeneration and regeneration
- Modeling human neurodevelopmental disorders in flies
- Modeling brain tumorigenesis in flies
- Regenerative medicine
Future research projects include studying sensation and decision making in flies. New ideas welcome!
Yuanquan Song, PhD
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.
