We explore how individual synapses are altered during their lifetime and how this contributes to our ability to learn and remember. A particular focus is dendritic RNA localization and subsequent translational control at the synapse, where RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) play an essential role. In collaboration with the Ninkovic lab, we are investigating how RBPs contribute to neurogenesis and reprogramming. Read more...
