Research Topics:

Addiction, Brain, Epigenetics, Gene Expressions, Molecular Biology, Neurobiology, RNA Splicing & Processing, Receptors, Schizophrenia

Dr. Dracheva's research centers on the neurobiology and neurochemistry of the brain in health and in mental illness. She applies a variety of molecular techniques to the study of postmortem human brain tissue and animal models. Primary areas of interest include the role of epigenetic (specifically mRNA editing) and genetic (primarily gene expression) mechanisms with a focus on psychiatric phenomena (e.g. suicide, drug addiction, and schizophrenia).
