Research Summary: The Sciolino lab studies the connectivity and function of neural circuits that regulate feeding and motivated behaviors. They utilize intersectional genetic and optical imaging approaches with the goal to provide future treatments for obesity and associated mental illnesses, such as anxiety and addiction.

 

We are currently seeking trainees at all levels, including postdoctoral and graduate fellows and work-study students, with opportunities to learn the latest advances in mouse genetics, chemo/optogenetics, and fiber photometry calcium imaging. Our lab is committed to promoting diversity and scientific excellence.
