Congratulations to Xavier Louis Camille A Warnet who has been appointed Postdoc in Kjærgaard team

Xavier will investigate the interaction between NMDA receptors C-terminal domains and PSD-95, a major interaction pair regarding memory formation and long-term potentiation. They have in the team demonstrated that these two proteins, aside of the canonical PDZ-mediated interaction, form biomolecular condensates through liquid-liquid phase separation. He will continue to investigate the physico-chemical parameters giving rise to this phenomenon, and also look at how does this translate in brain tissue.
