Welcome!

Our lab studies the mechanisms underlying olfaction and the circadian clock using a wide variety of genetic, molecular and genomic tools in the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans.

Current projects in the lab are focussed on three fundamental biological questions: 1) how do animals alter their chemosensory behavior to an ever-changing environment; 2) how does the brain controls growth and fat metabolism; 3) how does temperature control the circadian clock.

Two NSF funded PhD positions are available to study the modulation of chemoreceptor gene expression as a function of feeding state (see projects).
