The Sun Lab's research is at the intersection of neuroscience, developmental biology, genomics and genetics. The lab utilizes the power of two model organisms, C. elegans and mouse, to understand how the interplay between intrinsic genetic mechanisms and extrinsic environmental factors, through transcription and chromatin-based mechanisms, regulate neuronal development, plasticity, and function; and how dysregulation can lead to devastating neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders.
