Welcome to the Meitzen Lab at North Carolina State University

David Clark Labs - North Carolina State University - Dept. of Biology - Location of the Meitzen Lab

What we do:

Our research interests include how neuromodulators change or organize neuron function, especially within the context of sex differences. We particularly focus upon the actions of catecholamines and steroid sex hormones.

In the lab, we combine multiple approaches, including electrophysiology and modern cellular/molecular neuroscience techniques. Our work is highly interdisciplinary, and students are encouraged to build upon their previous experience and training to pursue both collaborative and individual projects within the overall framework of the laboratory.

Potential graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are encouraged to contact Dr. Meitzen directly. Graduate students can join our laboratory via the Masters or Ph.D. program in Zoology or Physiology. Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are encouraged to participate in the Keck Center for Behavioral Biology.
