We are currently accepting graduate students who are interested in continuing their training in a cutting edge laboratory. Interested individuals should check out UIC's Graduate Program in Neuroscience (GPN) and/or the Graduate Education in (bio)Medical Sciences (GEMS) program with a concentration in Neuroscience. Interested applicants can also contact Dr. LaDu (


We welcome undergraduates looking to gain research experience and who are willing to commit a minimum of 12-15 hours per week to the lab. Undergraduate students will learn basic lab techniques and assist with routine maintenance of the lab. They will then choose a senior lab member and work on their project to develop specific techniques. Finally, they will identify a project that is appropriate for their time commitment and skill-set. For more information or to apply visit the undergraduate research portal.
