The Behavioural Phenomics group is headed by Dr André Brown at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences. The group’s research is aimed at understanding how molecular level perturbations affect behaviour. For more information, see the group’s website at https://tierpsy.com/. Current areas of research include high-throughput imaging for phenotypic screening and the development of new behavior analysis methods. We are using this technology for whole-animal drug screens to repurpose drugs for rare diseases and to discover novel neuroactive compounds from diverse natural sources including bacteria and venomous animals.
