We are an inter-disciplinary research team who develop smart sensor technology to probe the brain. At the interface of engineering, chemistry, medicine and mathematics, we pioneer new tools and use them to study mental health. The Hashemi Lab is a safe and inclusive space; we are passionate about improving representation in STEM and welcome all people and ideas to help us.

What if a simple skin test could help diagnose and treat depression? | Parry Hashemi | TEDxUofSC
In Vivo Neurotransmitter Measurements
We study neurotransmitters that are involved in mood and emotional processes, in particular serotonin, histamine, glutamate and metal ions.
Depression Diagnostics and Drug Screening
By measuring neurotransmitters in the brain and in model systems outside the brain, we are searching for biomarkers to tell us the etiology and prevalence of depression.
