Selected projects

  • We are interested in the fundamental aspects of synaptic vesicle recycling that have relevance to neurological and neurodegenerative diseases, using mammalian cells and mice as model systems. My research group combines the cutting edge genomic engineering with the latest techniques of imaging and cell biology to study the processes that regulate synaptic vesicle formation. In a distinct but related line of work we are exploring the signaling processes that originate from altered neurotransmission and lead to neurodegeneration.
