SGCs have been the subject of intense scrutiny for their involvement in inflammation, pain and nerve injury. The results confirm that rodents are a reliable model for translational research on these cells.
Finding therapies for fragile X may depend on understanding the many ways the protein’s loss affects the brain.
Zhao, an assistant professor in the Department of Neuroscience, will apply imaging mass cytometry technology to analyze tissue samples from Alzheimer’s patients.
Groundbreaking cancer research helps shed light on recently identified disorder, Tatton Brown Rahman Syndrome.

Assistant Professor Jason Yi’s group applied the technique to variants of unknown significance in UBE3A, the gene that underlies Angelman syndrome.
The $500,000 award will go toward studying cellular influences on neuromodulator function.
Sengupta, a postdoc in Martha Bagnall’s lab, earned third place for illuminating the connectivity of spinal interneurons in zebrafish.
The Burkhalter lab finds that areas are embedded within a hierarchical network in which image fragments from the retina are sent through bottom-up pathways to extract percepts, and top-down pathways from higher to lower areas provide prior knowledge for interpreting the visual scene.
Paul Shaw’s lab demonstrates that sleep induction in fruit flies otherwise unable to perform learning and memory tasks rescues their behavioral performance.
