We have two major lines of research:
We use rodents as our models, and we employ whole-animal techniques such as behavioral testing (especially measures of ingestion), surgery, and pharmacology, along with bench methods such as immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, PCR, and Western blots.
On our website you can find a list of publications and archival data resulting from our research. You are invited to peruse our lab wiki for details on past and current experiments, laboratory protocols, and other topical information.
