The mechanisms by which feeding and fasting drive rhythmic gene expression for physiological adaptation to daily rhythm in nutrient availability are not well understood. In my PhD work I found that, upon feeding, the RNA binding protein NONO accumulates within speckle-like structures in liver cell nuclei. Combining RNA-immunoprecipitation and sequencing (RIP-seq), I found that an ... Read more about "Role of the RNA-binding protein NONO in circadian gene expression and metabolism"

Learning and memory decline with age. The same can be said about long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD), which are two cellular models of learning and memory. On the other hand, aging is not paralleled by neuronal loss, implying the existence of most strong survival mechanisms at the same time when synaptic function decays. ...

GABAergic synapses in the basolateral amygdala (BLA) play an important role in fear memory generation. We have previously reported that reduction in GABAergic synapses innervating specifically at the axon initial segment (AIS) of principal neurons of BLA, by neurofascin (NF) knockdown, impairs fear extinction. BLA is bidirectionally connected with the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC), which ...

For many non-communicable diseases, mechanisms acting exclusively at the protein level (e.g. synthesis, degradation, aggregation, post-translational modification) are major contributors to loss of cell function. This is also true for Hutchinson-Gilford progeria, a rapid aging disease for which good model systems were lacking at the time. During my master's thesis, I was able to partially ...
