Colleen Niswender, Ph.D.

Professor, Pharmacology
Warren Director of Neuroscience Drug Discovery, Molecular Pharmacology


Dr. Niswender’s work focuses on understanding the pathophysiology of neurodevelopmental disorders to develop and assess novel therapeutics. We employ a comprehensive set of approaches such as molecular biology and pharmacology, electrophysiology, in vivo pharmacology, and biomarker studies to translate lab findings into clinical development.
