Song Lab

The long-term goal of the lab is to elucidate the cellular and molecular basis governing the formation, maintenance, and function of neural circuits under physiological and pathological conditions, working with fly and mammalian models.

With a background in neural development, neural circuits and behavior, fly and mouse genetics, injury and neurodegeneration models, the our lab offers a unique skill set to achieve this goal.

Besides achieving excellence in scientific research, our lab's other primary goal is to foster a collaborative and stimulating environment, in order to bring out each lab member's best potential to help them build on their own interest and to pave the way for their career development.


We are always seeking motivated individuals with a strong interest in research, an open mindset to learn and collaborate, and a career goal to make a difference. Intrigued? Email Dr. Song at with your CV, short summary of research, and three references (postdoc candidates). See details about the position.
