Biography

My lab group investigates synaptic biology in in health and disease, focusing on the  cellular and physiological aspect of disease with a translational focus. We study the molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of glutamatergic synapses and how genetic risk factors for disease, impact synaptic biology. To achieve this, we utilize cutting-edge technologies such as patient derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and advanced cellular imaging approaches. This allows us to investigate the dynamic and nanoscopic organisation of synaptic proteins, as well as structural and functional remodelling of synapses, and we work closely with basic and clinical colleagues as well as pharmaceutical companies to address these questions. I also lead the Wohl Cellular Imaging Centre (WCIC), an advanced light microscopy facility, specialising in imaging needs for neuroscience research.
