Guo applies curiosity and collaboration to research

“There are lots of important problems. Only attack those for which you can divine simple experiments with clear answers.”
—Julius Axelrod

This quotation is a guiding principle for Su Guo, PhD, professor in the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences (BTS). Her research employs the unique strengths of a simple vertebrate, the zebrafish (Danio rerio), to address a wide variety of topics related to neuroscience.
