As the principal investigator of our laboratory, I get to wear several hats: a scientist, a teacher, a manager, an accountant, an administrator etc. My favorite role though is being the 'truth seeker', where I get to pursue enigmatic neurobiological processes with the zeal of a kid in a candy store. I'm very proud of my hardworking research team and its immense potential. On the personal front, I'm the proud dad of an eight year old who knows that our brain is the most important part of our body because 'it can not be replaced'.
