I have a deep interest in the structure and function of the synapse. I look at important synaptic processes, try to find the structural crux in the system, and then employ powerful imaging techniques to expose the inner workings of that system in an effort to understand that crucial piece of the process. Currently, I am focused on determining how synaptic vesicles are trafficked within the presynaptic terminal of hippocampal neurons. Our descriptive analysis of the presynaptic terminal has lead to many new questions about the synaptic vesicle cycle and synaptic transmission.
