Our lab is part of the Department of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School, at the Longwood (Boston) campus of Harvard University. Every week, the Boston area hosts a great roster of neuroscience seminars, many of them at the Longwood campus.

The lab is accessible from the subway, via stops on either the Green "D" or "E" lines (red stars on the map below). The most convenient entrance is via the grassy quadrangle (green rectangle on the map) at 220 Longwood Avenue, across from Avenue Louis Pasteur. More maps of the Longwood area are posted on the HMS main page.


Students generally enter the lab via the Harvard Ph.D. Program in Neuroscience (PIN). Prospective students should start by applying to PIN. The PIN community links us with many Harvard neuroscientists with common research interests.

Our location on the Longwood Quadrangle places us within shouting distance of five other basic science departments:
Cell Biology, Genetics, Systems Biology, Biological Chemistry & Molecular Pharmacology, and Microbiology & Molecular Genetics.

In addition, we share some research interests with labs in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (Cambridge campus) in the Center for Brain Science and
the Department of Molecular and Cellular BiologyThe Longwood and Cambridge campuses are linked by a shuttlebus.
