Quantitative Neurobiology

Our lab investigates the development of the central nervous system. The long-term goal of our research is to understand the biophysics of learning and memory. Towards that end, we integrate cryo-electron nanoscopy, molecular and cellular biophysics to resolve the molecular mechanisms that underly synaptic plasticity. Specifically, we study macro-molecular complex formation inside developing neuronal synapses.
