The Kaufer Lab.
We are a neuroscience research lab at the University of California, Berkeley.
The Kaufer Lab investigates molecular events that underlie brain plasticity and deterioration in the face of stress and neurological insults throughout life. While we are primarily a molecular neuroscience lab, we use interdisciplinary approaches ranging from cell culture to behavioral analysis, and frequently collaborate to expand our methods of analysis including high-resolution imaging, electrophysiology, and high-throughput methods. Under the umbrella of stress and blood-brain barrier research, we have a diverse array of past and current projects.
Read more about our projects in our research page. For interested and motivated students or researchers, visit our contact page for current opportunities at the lab.
