The Shahar Lab - Molecular Neurodynamics
Research Overview - Molecular Neurodynamics
Under construction - To be updated <:0>>< :-)
We study molecular dynamics in the brain and mechanisms of mRNA translation control.
Our interests include:
- To elucidate molecular mechanisms of memory formation.
- To define molecular pathways of brain development in health and disease.
- To better understand the mechanisms leading to neurodegeneration, focusing on genomic-instability-related disorders.
- To reveal molecular networks affecting aging.
Our model systems include cell cultures and zebrafish which are well suited for our aims.
We use state of the art microscopy, cell-type-specific proteomics and sequencing combined with computational analysis.
