Joseph Gabriele


Dr. Gabriele's research as a basic/translational scientist involves bridging basic scientists and clinicians.  Specifically, his research interests include the molecular biology aspects of mental illness, specifically schizophrenia and autism. His laboratory is currently working on biological markers implicated in psychosis. He uses numerous molecular biology techniques including: Real-Time PCR; Epigenetics; Cloning protocols; immunohistochemistry.
