Gardner Lab Publications

 

This collection showcases the journal articles and other publications authored by researchers in the Gardner Lab. The Gardner Lab at the University of Massachusetts Medical School was established in 2000, in the Brudnick Neuropsychiatric Research Institute, in the Department of Psychiatry. In 2017, the Gardner Lab moved to the Department of Neurobiology.
