We are an NIH-funded lab!!

Professor Been was awarded an R15 AREA Grant from the National Institute of Mental Health. This award will fund experiments that seek to identify the mechanism by which postpartum estrogen withdrawal impacts mesolimbic brain circuitry and motivated behaviors. We are particularly excited to bring a new technique, fast scan cyclic voltammetry, to the lab! Big thanks to the many previous Been Lab students who generated the preliminary data for this grant, and to our collaborators Dr. Eric Nestler (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai) and Dr. Rodrigo EspaƱa (Drexel College of Medicine).
