We love discovery.
We're a lab at Discovery Ridge at the University of Missouri. Also, this is not an official university website.
- Mission. Create and publish data that will make a difference in the lives of people and animals.
- Guiding Questions. What is the basis of resilience? How do tissues interact to affect brain function and behavior?
- Methodologies. Molecular, cellular, genetic, pharmacological, electrochemical, and behavioral.
- Values. Integrity, Commitment, Excellence, Service.
- Philosophy. Science is creative work. Scientists discover compelling stories about the nature of life.
