Cole Ferguson Lab

Welcome to the Ferguson lab website!

We study the role of chromatin in neuronal development, in particular how defects in genetic and epigenetic regulation contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders. In pursuit of these goals, we employ a wide range of experimental methods, including imaging, genomics, biochemistry and animal behavior.

There are a number of ongoing projects in the Ferguson lab related to the fields of molecular neuroscience, genetics and cell & developmental biology. If you are interested in joining or rotating through the lab, please contact Dr. Ferguson at!
