Pradeep Bhide

Professor, Jim and Betty Ann Rodgers Eminent Scholar Chair of Developmental Neuroscience, Director, Center for Brain Repair

Bhide received his degree in veterinary medicine from Veterinary College, Bangalore, India, and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. He undertook postdoctoral training in developmental neurobiology at University College, London; Yale University; and Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

The research in the Bhide laboratory focuses on developmental neurological and psychiatric conditions including ADHD and early-onset generalized dystonia. Current research projects include examination of the role of dopamine receptor activation in the developing brain; the effects of prenatal exposure to cocaine, nicotine and analgesic medications on the development of the brain and behavior; and the developmental origins of the movement disorder generalized dystonia.
