Within this program, the Section on Synapse Development Plasticity (chief: Zheng Li, PhD, https://www.nimh.nih.gov/research/research-conducted-at-nimh/principal-investigators/zheng-li.shtml) uses molecular and cellular biology, two-photon microscopy, and electrophysiology to investigate the mechanisms underlying synaptic plasticity in normal brains and synaptopathology of psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia.

Postdoctoral Fellow

This is a full-time research position located at the 300 acre Bethesda campus of the NIH, near Washington D.C.
