    Research interests

    Dr. Stockmeier's studies examine disease-specific abnormalities in anatomic, biochemical and pharmacological markers and related gene expression in postmortem brain tissue from subjects with depression. The ultimate goal of these studies is to identify pathophysiological processes that may be critical in the etiology of depression, and thereby target mechanisms in brain against which new therapeutic medications can be directed.
