Structural Biology of Neurotransmission

We are interested in the structural and biochemical underpinnings of neurotransmission and neurodegeneration, as well as the homeostasis of the proteins contributing to these processes. Primarily, we will be applying cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to reconstruct the biochemical processes underlying these problems. We firmly believe that the most informative mechanistic insights into biology come from a deep understanding of the biological machines that govern them.
