Thank you for your interest in the Donaldson Lab.
We are an interdisciplinary lab housed in the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at University of Colorado, Boulder. We study the mechanistic basis for individual differences in behavior and how these impact likelihood to develop mental illness. Our work utilizes mice, prairie voles, and post-mortem human tissue, in advanced neurogenetic and circuit-level analysis to better understand how genes and environment shape who we are.
