Welcome to the Isacoff Lab

Our lab's research is focused in four intersecting and complementary areas: mechanisms of ion channel function, synapse development and plasticity, neural circuit function, and the design of novel probes for the optical detection of neuronal signaling.



Udi is elected to the National Academy of Sciences! Congratulations to Udi and all the lab members that have gotten the lab where it is today!
