Richard Sando, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Pharmacology


Dr. Sando investigates the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying synaptic circuit assembly and function in the mammalian central nervous system. We interrogate fundamental principles of neuronal cell biology by utilizing interdisciplinary methodologies ranging from electrophysiology, light/super-resolution microscopy, and in vivo analysis of animal models. Our goal is to elucidate mechanistic principles of mammalian brain development and function that will open new possibilities for the treatment of neurological disorders.
