About Asst. Prof Zhang’s work at Duke-NUS:
Our work is to understand the basic science underlying psychiatric disorders, such as depression, schizophrenia and ADHD.  We use transgenic animal mouse models that recapitulate certain psychiatric symptoms, and study mouse behaviors using various drugs.  We also work with clinicians and study genetic mutations in psychiatric patients.  Our goal is to develop novel treatment and diagnostic tools for the treatment of psychiatric disorders.
