The Farris lab is opening in October 2018 at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute in Roanoke, VA! We are a part of the Developmental and Translational Neurobiology Center at the VTCRI and the Department of Biomedical Sciences and Pathobiology in the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech.

The lab focuses on understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying learning and how these processes are disrupted in neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia.
