Migraine is a condition that affects over 40 million individuals in the US and approximately 10% of the global population. Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a well-documented migraine trigger. We know this because CGRP levels are elevated in migraine, and when given CGRP, migraine patients...

I am interested in the molecular mechanisms that contribute to psychiatric disorders, primarily those that are related to the HPA-axis. Using techniques that range from genetic analyses to behavioral assays, I hope to uncover some of the fundamental pathway aberrations that predispose people to...

I'm broadly interested in studying the electrical mechanisms underlying migraine and other complex brain disorders using multi-site in vivo recordings and animal behavior. One of the most well known triggers of migraine is stress. Early life stress, in particular, is correlated with migraine...

I am interested in the neural mechanisms and circuitry underlying neuropsychiatric disorders in addition to factors impacting individual’s vulnerability to their development. Fascinated by prenatal and early life risk for such disorders, I am further interested in the influence of maternal mental...

The Taylor Lab investigates mechanisms regulating mitochondrial function in health and disease. We use genetic and chemical methods to illuminate metabolic networks and the mechanisms by which they regulate cellular function. We address problems in diabetes, cancer, and neurological disease, in cell...
