Sleep Regulation

We integrate biochemical, genetic, and chemical biology approaches to identify key genes in sleep/wake regulation.


RNAi and microRNA

We integrate classical biochemistry, genetics, and biophysical approaches to investigate the molecular and regulatory mechanisms of the RNAi and microRNA pathways.


We integrate forward genetic screen and classical biochemistry to understand the molecular circuits of RNAi/microRNA and sleep regulation.
