Steele lab @ Cal Poly Pomona
The Steele lab studies how circadian rhythms are affected by feeding. In particular, we are interested in determining what part of the brain is required for entraining biological rhythms to feeding. We have preliminary evidence for the importance of dopamine acting through the D1 receptor in the dorsal striatum as a key mediator in this process.
We just began getting the lab set up in late September of 2013. At present we have 4 lab members and do not have any opportunites for research positions at present.
The current lab members are:
Andrew Steele, PhD; Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences
Tim Huddy, Biotechnology Junior
Natalie Garcia, Biotechnology Junior
Antonio Aguayo, Biology Junior
Elizabeth Hill, MS candidate
