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 a seven year old who knows that our brain is the most important part of our body because 'it can not be replaced'.
