About my research

The Guo Lab aims to fundamentally understand how the brain works, which is key to treating developmental, degenerative, and psychiatric neurological disorders.

The brain is the central commander of an organism. We seek to answer:

  • How is the brain formed and maintained?
  • How does the brain control important functions, such as seeking reward, avoiding punishment, and learning?

We use the model organism zebrafish (Danio rerio) together with mammalian pluripotent stem cell models and apply technologies such as molecular and chemical genetics, pharmacogenetics, imaging, computational sciences, and behavioral studies.
