Postdoctoral Fellows

  • wei

    Wei Jiao
    Ph.D., Karolinska Institutet

    I am working on the molecular regulation of synaptic terminal branching and I am using Drosophila to understand the genetic relationship between molecules implicated in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
  • carol

    Carolina Cela,
    Ph.D., CSIC - Universitat de Barcelona[+]

    I am working on the role of RNA processing in synapse development and how defects in mRNA splicing can produce motor neuron disease in particular SMA.
  • souyma

    Soumya Banerjee,
    Ph.D., Miami University[+]

    I am working on the role of activity in synapse stability. I am also developing new techniques to label and manipulate neuronal circuits.
Graduate Student

    Ben Jiwon Choi,
    B.S., Seoul National University[+]

    My research is focused on the role of neurotransmission in the regulation of synaptic development and on understanding how BMP signaling is regulated at the neuromuscular synapses.
