About DSA-Funded Research

The Meffert lab studies mechanisms underlying enduring changes in brain function. They are interested in understanding how programs of gene expression are coordinated and maintained to produce changes in synaptic, neuronal, and cognitive function. Rather than concentrating on single genes, her research is particularly focused on understanding the upstream processes that allow neuronal stimuli to synchronously orchestrate both up and down-regulation of the many genes required to mediate changes in growth and excitation.
