Hilgers Lab

Our lab studies the genetics and epigenetics of the nervous system. We investigate neuron-specific RNA signatures and their role in neuronal development and function. Our technologies range from functional Drosophila genetics, behavior studies, and imaging, to RNA biochemistry and transcriptomics approaches. Here are our funding sources.
