Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology/Therapeutics

Mark Moehle, PhD

Dr. Mark Moehle is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology/Therapeutics, College of Medicine.  New to UF in 2020, Dr. Moehle recruits undergraduates to work in his independent lab that does research to understand the physiological, circuitry, and behavioral changes that cause the motor and non-motor symptoms of movement disorders. In fact, his first two lab assistants came from CUR. The overarching goal of the Moehle Laboratory is to understand the cellular, molecular, and circuitry changes that underlie both the motor and non-motor symptoms of movement disorders, and to leverage these discoveries into novel therapeutic strategies for these diseases. Dr. Moehle has been published 18 times. 

In addition to the information above, Dr. Moehle uses CUR to recruit undergraduate researchers by listing projects on our student opportunity database such as, CNS changes in movement disorders.  This project uses multiple behavioral, pharmacological, electrophysiological, and photometry approaches to understand how neural circuits change in movement disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease and Dystonia. 

Thank you for you contribution to undergraduate research!
