Credentials: My work explores the fundamentals of how neurons communicate. In one project, I am defining biophysical properties of Ca2+ sensors for neurotransmitter release and how mutations in these Ca2+ sensors cause disease in human patients. In a second project, I am seeking to define functions for orphan synaptic vesicle proteins.
