Director, Iowa Neuroscience Institute and Chair, Department of Neuroscience & Pharmacology, University of Iowa

SFARI Investigator, SFARI Scientific Review Board Website

Ted Abel is chair of the Department of Neuroscience and Pharmacology and director of the Iowa Neuroscience Institute in the Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa.

The focus of research in the Abel laboratory is to understand the molecular mechanisms of memory storage and the molecular basis of neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders. The Abel laboratory uses mouse models to examine the role of molecular signaling pathways, as well as transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of gene expression, in defining how neural circuits mediate behavior. The long-term goal is to identify novel targets for the development of new therapeutics to treat neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders.
