Event details

Our speaker, Iain Robinson, is from the Peninsula Medical School at the University of Plymouth. He has a long standing interest in the molecular and biophysical principles of membrane fusion.

Dr Robinson's work for the last several years have used the Drosophila neuromuscular junction to investigate key exocytotic  and endocytotic mechanisms  underpinning neurotransmitter release. More recently he has used changes in these stereotypically formed neuromuscular structures to investigate the relationship between oxidative stress and lipid storage in synaptic structure/function and how they model disease. The talk will be of wide interest to those studying molecular cell biology and processes that contribute to neurodegenerative disease.
