Activation of GIRK channels by p75 neurotrophin receptors underlies Aβ-induced neuronal death
Joanne and Victor publish a collaborative paper with the Coulson Lab (UQ) in Frontiers in Neuroscience, reporting the role of G-protein-coupled Inwardly Rectifying Potassium (GIRK/Kir3) channels and p75 neurotrophin receptors in mediating potassium efflux during Aβ-induced neuronal death.
Double celebration for Tianyi
The lab celebrates the graduation of our first Master (research intensive) student, Tianyi, who passed with flying colours and received the Dean's Commendation for Academic Excellence. On the same day, Tianyi also learnt that he was awarded a highly competitive UQ International Graduate School Scholarship to pursue his PhD in the Anggono Lab. Well done Tianyi and congrats!!!
2017 Wenzhou Summer Student Program
We are pleased to welcome Ms Jun Chen, a Wenzhou Summer Scholar who will undertake a short research project for the next 6 weeks in the Anggono Lab. This is the second time the Anggono Lab participates in the Wenzhou Summer Student Program, which selects only a handful of outstanding undergraduates through a competitive application and interview process. Welcome Jun!
