Research Summary:

Fast neurotransmission is mediated by highly organized pre- and postsynaptic protein complexes. The molecular mechanisms which establish, maintain, and alter these synaptic nano-protein machines are poorly understood. Our work focuses on the molecular mechanisms that regulate pre- and postsynaptic protein complexes.
