Scientific Cores

The Program Project Grant is supported by two Scientific Core, the Transgenic and Molecular Core and the Behavioral Core, which support a wide range of experimental tools and approaches that facilitate work in each of the four Projects:

Viral Mediated Gene Transfer
Inducible, Cell-Targeted Mutations in Mice
Chromatin and Gene Analyses
Behavioral Models of Addiction
Neurophysiological and Optogenetic Tools

The Transgenic and Molecular Core is headed by Eric Nestler (Mount Sinai). The Behavioral Core is headed by Vanna Zachariou (Mount Sinai). Bill Carlezon (Harvard) and Jane Taylor (Yale) augment the behavioral assays available to Program Project Grant investigators.
