Dr. Feng is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Eric Nestler at Mount Sinai. His overall goal as an independent investigator is to study DNA epigenetic modifications in the central nervous system (CNS) by using mouse models of drug addiction and depression. Ultimately, he aims to understand the epigenetic mechanisms of brain disorders and to use his findings to develop novel therapies to treat these diseases.
