Gruppebilde Neurotargeting Group red

The neurotargeting research group has a broad range of expertise. Advances in molecular neurobiology now provide possibilities for the development of new therapies designed for treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders. This type of translational research requires competency in both basic molecular research and experience in practical treatment. Methods and Instruments.

The group involves four principal investigators. Please visit their labs pages to learn more about their research.

Synaptic protein structure

Structure of the memory regulator Arc

The post-synaptic protein Arc has been termed a master regulator of memory. In line with its homology to certain viral proteins, it has also been shown recently to form virus-like capsids. We have elucidated for the first time the 3D structure of full-length monomeric Arc.
