EASTBIO Dimers are forever: shining a light on the origins of memory storage using single-molecule microscopy

Memories can last a lifetime, and yet the proteins involved in storing them are replaced on the timescale of a few weeks. One mechanism explaining this phenomenon involves the formation of dimers within the brain. Read more

EASTBIO An integrated approach to deciphering the role of proline in intrinsically disordered protein regions

Proteins often have a well-defined structure that is key to it performing their function. Intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs) have no defined 3D structure and are found in many proteins, yet their purpose is poorly understood. Read more

EASTBIO Activation of AMPA-type glutamate neuroreceptors in health and disease

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
The human brain contains about 86 billion neurons communicating with each other in a hugely complex network. Dynamic activity changes in this network form the basis of all our cognitive processes, such as memory formation and learning. Read more

EASTBIO: Investigating the 16p11.2 genetic autism risk factor in brain development.

  Research Group: Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences
Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. Autism spectrum condition or ‘autism’ is associated with numerous genetic risk factors including the polygenic 16p11.2 microdeletion. Read more

EASTBIO: Synaptic repair mechanisms counteracting synaptic loss in Alzheimers disease models

  Research Group: Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences
Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia impairing memory and affecting over 50 million people worldwide, including 850,000 people in the UK. Read more

EASTBIO: Thalamocortical control of multi-directional movement

  Research Group: Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences
Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. Executing appropriately timed, reproducible actions is essential for interacting with our environment and ultimately survival. Read more

EASTBIO: Neural Circuits of Kinship Behaviour

  Research Group: Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences
Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. The research goals of this PhD project would involve study of the circuits underlying natural social behaviours with a focus on behaviour that is ethologically relevant for the animal. Read more
