The Behavioral and Functional Genetics Lab of Karl J. Clark, Ph.D., focuses on the development of genome engineering tools to interrogate the genetics of stress response and characterize patients' variant alleles that potentially contribute to a wide range of rare disorders. Dr. Clark's lab has four actively funded research projects and welcomes students to participate directly in these projects or to develop related projects that would blossom within the lab's rich workspace.
Dr. Clark's Behavioral and Functional Genetics laboratory contributes to the development of tools and research that aid in the better understanding of how the stress response system develops, how stress signaling impacts patients, and how defects in the mitochondrial genome might be corrected, and help identify variants that may contribute to rare disorders.
