Welcome to the Wenthur Lab Website!

Our interdisciplinary group is composed of both clinical and basic scientists, and we are always looking for new members and collaborators interested in working with us. We aim to improve both our understanding of how the brain works and to translate this improved understanding into improved mental healthcare delivery approaches. As a group, we are especially focused on reducing morbidity and mortality from substance use and mood disorders.
