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.
Randolph L. Rill Professor of Biomedical Sciences & Neuroscience, Department Chair of Biomedical Sciences
Nawakowski is an expert on the brain, including brain development, the brain’s ability to grow neurons (also known as neurogenesis) during pre-natal and adult life cycles, and the genetics of individual brain differences.
Associate Professor of Biomedical Sciences & Neuroscience
Stanwood is a developmental neuropharmacologist and behavioral neuroscientist. His research investigates the developmental origins of brain disorders through careful assessments of brain developmental trajectories following genetic and environmental perturbations.
