For investigators looking for a lab as a postdoc, to complete their thesis, rotation, or to gain research experience, whether their expertise is in genetics, molecular biology, or working with animal models for injury/disease, the Song Lab provides a home to learn, work, share, and build together.

Song Lab Team


Upon joining the Song Lab, researchers set goals and map out suitable projects within the lab's general themes: neural development, maintenance, and function. Lab members can choose from a number of projects already in the works, test their own ideas, or develop new directions. Mentoring style is individualized, too, as researchers choose a more hands on or independent approach.

Potential Rotation Projects

  • Utilize the fly sensory neuron injury model to identify novel pathways regulating degeneration and regeneration
  • Study tumorigenesis in flies
  • Establish new injury models using human cells
  • CRISPR screen for neural regeneration and degeneration.

Our team's accomplishments lead to the success of the lab! If you are interested in joining us, please email Dr. Song.
