rom Saints to Sociopaths: Dopamine and Decisions

Nadine Kabbani, PhD is a group leader at the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study and an Assistant Professor of Molecular Neuroscience at George Mason University. Dr. Kabbani bridges our everyday lives with her experiences with neuroscience research.

Her research focuses on the cellular and molecular mechanisms of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor signaling in the developing and regenerating nervous system. Her lab explores the role of acetylcholine in synapse formation and maturation during early life stages using high resolution live cell imaging, genetics, and proteomics.
