Juan Pablo Lopez
Dr. Juan Pablo Lopez is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neuroscience.
Pablo received his undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Biology from Florida International University in Miami (USA). He received his doctoral degree (Ph.D.) from McGill University in Montreal (Canada), under the supervision of Dr. Gustavo Turecki, where he studied the role of non-coding RNA in major depression, suicide, and antidepressant treatment response. In 2016, Pablo moved to Munich (Germany) for a postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Alon Chen, at the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry. During his postdoc, he investigated the neurobiology of stress responses, using single-cell transcriptomics.
In 2022, Pablo was recruited by the Department of Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institutet (Sweden). His laboratory seeks to understand and characterize the molecular mechanisms, cellular circuits, and behavioral correlates, associated with stress-related psychiatric disorders and their treatments, using animal models.
