Waterhouse Lab

The primary research focus of my laboratory is to understand the role of the central monoaminergic systems in brain function and behavior. 


Cell and Gene Therapy Center

Dr. Paola Leone's research is on neurological diseases that can be treated using the latest gene transfer technologies and cell transplantation methods.

Orthopedic Research Group

The Orthopedic Research Group is a spinout at Rowan University, making close connections between orthopedics, as a medical science, and engineering.

Chandler Lab

Humans are exposed to stress daily throughout their lives.  During a stressful experience, the brainstem nucleus locus coeruleus becomes engaged and releases norepinephrine throughout the central nervous system...

Devilbiss Lab

Role of neuromodulators in shaping the neural dynamics of cognitive and behavioral flexibility. Electrophysiological signatures of cognitive dysfunction and therapeutics. Mechanisms of cognitive dysfunction following concussion and mild traumatic brain injury...

Holaska Lab

My research program studies the molecular mechanisms underlying how the nuclear envelope regulates some of these fundamental cellular processes, including genomic architecture, RNA transcription and cell signaling.

Kumari Lab

The regulatory pathways associated with tongue homeostasis and genes responsible for taste fungiform papilla/taste bud alteration after HH pathway blockade are not clearly understood and remain challenging to understand tongue physiology in response to therapeutic interventions such as HH signaling blockade.

Loweth Lab

The Loweth lab is interested in understanding how exposure to drugs of abuse such as psychostimulants lead to long-lasting changes in neuronal circuitry and motivated behavior that ultimately drive compulsive drug taking and drug seeking behavior.

Manvich Lab

Our primary research program is focused on understanding the interactions between psychosocial stressor exposure, stress-coping strategies, and the behavioral effects of drugs of abuse.

Dr. Navarra's Lab

We utilize a combination of in-vivo electrophysiology and behavioral pharmacology to study the neurobiology of sensory signal processing, decision making, and higher order cognitive functions. 

Venkat Lab

Coming soon...

Yin Lab

Despite advances in antibiotic therapythere is a significant need for more efficacious treatments of severe bacterial infectionsThe host responds to bacterial infection by activating the innate immune system to clear pathogen by phagocytic and killing mechanisms...
