Research in the Ngai Lab focuses on the molecular mechanisms underlying the development and function of the vertebrate olfactory system using molecular, genomic, computational and anatomical approaches. We are also leveraging high-throughput genomic and genome engineering techniques to characterize the diversity of cell types in the mouse brain.
With a broad portfolio of approaches and technologies, we aim to make significant discoveries on the molecules, cells and circuits underlying the development, regeneration and function of the nervous system during normal processes and disease.

The Ngai Lab is in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology and Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute and affiliated with the Berkeley Stem Cell Center and California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences.
