Division Members


Our division continues to enjoy a close relationship amongst the different laboratories. We meet weekly to have trainees share data with all the labs in attendance (except for the Champagne Lab which is downtown). Jay Gingrich received an R01 to continue studies on the role of serotonin in brain development. Mark Ansorge received an R01 from NIMH to study the developmental origins of impulsive and aggressive behaviors. Francis Champagne has a major project in a recently funded Conte Center (J. Mann, PI) examining the epigenetic changes underlying parasuicidal behaviors.

Construction planning continues for the East wing of Pardes 4 which will eventually house the laboratories of Sackler Basic Science faculty in the Division of Developmental Neuroscience. Construction is expected to begin in late 2016.
