Welcome to the Gordon Lab

The sense of taste provides animals with critical information about the nutritional suitability of foods. In the Gordon lab, we use the powerful fruit fly model system to understand how neural circuits process taste information and control feeding behaviour. We also use feeding and other motor circuits to probe the molecular control of neural deveopment.

The lab is part of the Department of Zoology and the Life Sciences Institute at the University of British Columbia in beautiful Vancouver, Canada.
