New publication from Marco Capogna in Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience

Ligands to metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are potential novel drugs for neurological and psychiatric disorders, but little is known about the effects of these compounds at synapses of the human cerebral cortex. To fill this gap, this paper shows the effects of group II mGluR activation on excitatory synaptic transmission recorded from…

Get insight into Cryo-EM in new feature from the Nordic EMBL Partnership

Cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, has been around since the 1970s, but it’s only in recent years that, thanks to technological advances, the technique has become more accessible. Poul Nissen, Director of DANDRITE, and Bernt Eric Uhlin, Founding Director of MIMS until October 2018, are interviewed about the current cryo-EM setups available in…

Postdoc Kosuke Okuda

2018.12.19 | TomonoriTakeuchi

New postdoctoral researcher in Tomonori Takeuchi’s team

Dr. Kosuke Okuda has been granted DKK 2.1 million (three years) by the Lundbeck Foundation to investigate proteins crucial for novelty-induced memory enhancement. The aim is to identify and functionally charactarize plasticity-related-proteins essential for novelty-induced memory enhancement.  The project will involve: Screening for…
