last modified Oct 01, 2020 03:52 PM

Congratulations to Dr Janin Lautenschlaeger, who will start as Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow at CIMR. Her project, entitled ‘Liquid-liquid phase separation of alpha-synuclein at the presynaptic terminal’ will be carried out in Prof. Peter St George-Hyslop’s lab and focus on the recently-discovered property of the protein to form liquid condensates. Janin will study how these protein condensates are implicated in the synaptic function of alpha-synuclein, a protein important in Parkinson’s and some other, rarer neurodegenerative diseases.
