BON APPÉTIT ! Welcome to our humble establishment! We are a productive, NIH-funded laboratory at the Department of Psychiatry and Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development at Vanderbilt University. We believe that the successful researcher should work hard, be smart, curious and honest, plan ahead, play by the rules, respect co-workers and have a happy and fulfilling private life outside the work environment. We improve our menu on the daily bases and we are happy to cater for you, so drop in often.
