Beier Laboratory

Welcome to the Beier laboratory at the University of California, Irvine.

Research Focus

Here in the Beier lab, we have four major areas of investigation:

  1. Elucidating the neural substrates of drug addiction and identifying sources of individual addiction variability
  2. Identifying & modulating molecules/circuits that promote behaviors associated with mood disorders such as anxiety and anhedonia
  3. Mapping circuit pathology in neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimers
  4. Technology development to further our investigation of biological questions
