Welcome to the Wickersham Laboratory, also known as the Genetic Neuroengineering Group.
We engineer genetic techniques for neuroscience and neurology, to allow increased understanding of the organization of the brain and improved treatments for neurological disorders.
We are developing genetic techniques for neuroscience, to provide more powerful and precise ways of studying the organization of the brain, and potentially to provide clinical neurology with more effective ways of treating disorders of the brain.
Our work is currently funded by four BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) Initiative awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation (NSF) as well as grants from private organizations.
We are always open to the possibility of talented and motivated individuals joining our team, whether as visiting students, technical assistants, or postdoctoral associates and fellows. Please contact us if you are interested.
