Assistant Professor at Department of Psychiatry, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. My research interests included genetics of Alzheimer's disease and other psychiatric disorders.
Professor of Biology, University of South Dakota; Past President, Society of Systematic Biologists; Elected Fellow, AAAS.
Stephen L. Macknik trained as a postdoc with Zachary Mainen at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and David Hubel at Harvard Medical School. He has a BA in Psychobiology, Biology and Psychology from the Univ of California, Santa Cruz, and a PhD in Neurobiology from Harvard Univ, with Margaret Livingstone. His research seeks to understand the neural underpinnings of visual awareness and attention, and the neural consequences of cerebral blood flow in the healthy brain and in neurological disorders.
BBSRC Institute Career Path Fellow and Senior Lecturer at The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh. My group presently investigates several inter-related research themes in bone formation and vascular calcification.
She graduated in Biological Science and achieved the PhD at the University of Rome "Sapienza". She trained as a post doc with Enrico Cherubini at SISSA, and with Cornelius Gross at EMBL. She is Assistant Professor at the University of Rome "Sapienza”. The main projects of her lab are devoted to the study of long-term changes of neural activity in hippocampal slice as result of glia-neuron interactions and environmental stimulation, using electrophysiological and molecular techniques.
My research group is working to identify genetic mutations that contribute to the development of leukaemia, and studying how these mutations influence a patient’s response to therapy. The cancer landscape is both complex and dynamic and we're using genomic approaches to study how cancer cells evolve in response to treatment.
