lab focuses on neurobiology of physical exercise and drug abuse
using the laboratory mouse as the model organism and the
neurobiology of socially controlled sex change in the clownfish. The
lab is supported by two federally funded grants through NIH and a
grant funding the Mouse Cognition Core Facility acquired from the
Center for Nutrition, Learning, and Memory at the University of
Illinois. The lab consists of 2 postdoctoral research fellow, 4
graduate students, 1 research coordinator, 6 research technicians,
and several undergraduates. The
atmosphere is friendly and supportive and devoted to training the
next generation of neuroscientists and geneticists. The
Rhodes lab provides an opportunity where students can develop
independence and be highly productive.
