Biographical Info

Research Areas

Dr. Brooks is a molecular neuroscientist whose research focuses on deciphering the molecular mechanisms that underlie memory and learning. These studies investigate gene-environment interactions in the context of aging, neurodegenerative disease and neurotoxicant exposure. Dr. Brooks is a well-recognized genomicist and has been involved in the development and implementation of cutting edge molecular based technologies for nucleic acid and protein analyses. He has worked to automate the RUCDR and build the service entity that provides high throughput sample management and analysis for DNA, RNA and protein-based technologies to hundreds of labs globally.

Research Highlights

Enhancing basic and clinical science programs by providing high throughput genomics-based technologies.
