    Gamble, Karen, Associate Professor (P) 2009 -

    The overall goal of my research program is to investigate environmental modulation of circadian clock function in mammalian systems and the contribution of clock disruption to pathological disease. One of the most exciting discoveries that has emerged in recent years is that the circadian molecular clock regulates excitability in neurons that are spontaneously active in the absence of synaptic input. Although the intrinsic 24-h rhythm in membrane properties of neurons of the suprachiasmatic nucl...

    Day, Jeremy, Associate Professor (S) 2019 -

    My major research interest is the neurobiological regulation of reward-related memory systems in the brain and the role of these systems in drug addiction. My laboratory approaches this broad topic at diverse levels of analysis that integrate molecular, genetic, and epigenetic tools with techniques that probe the function of single neurons and entire neuronal circuits. My ultimate goal is to understand epigenetic regulation in normal and disease states, and to use tools that manipulate the epige...

    Thyme, Summer, Assistant Professor (S) 2019 -

    My long-term research goals are to uncover the molecular basis of complex neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric diseases and eventually create therapies. I have a broad background in biochemistry, molecular biology, and neurobiology. To gain a fundamental understanding of protein structure and function and the skills to engineer therapeutics, I joined David Baker’s protein modeling lab for my graduate studies (2006-2012). I fused computational and experimental approaches to redesign biomolecul...
