Lisa Stowers, PhD

Principal Investigator

Dr. Lisa Stowers studies ligands, neurons and brain nuclei that initiate social behavior using molecular genetics and genomics; her work is determining the rules that generate the information coding of neuronal networks.



Sourish Mukhopadhyay

Graduate Student

M.S. Neurobiology and Neurosciences, Tata Institute for Fundamental Research, India

B,S. Biochemistry, Panjab University, India

Sourish is interested in understanding how social circuits and motor control systems interact to give rise to meaningful behavior.



Norah Koblesky

Graduate Student, UCSD

B.S. Biology, University of Iowa

B.A. Psychology, University of Iowa

Norah is studying peripheral olfactory system biology using histological and genomic approaches, with a specific interest in how olfaction is coded and how such coding can influence behavior. She is also interested in how different factors such as internal states can affect behavioral responses.
