Dr. Wenjie Luo

Congratulations! New R01 from NIH awarded to Dr. Wenjie Luo

DAP12 (also called TYROBP) acts as an adaptor protein in microglia involved in the cross-interaction of signaling networks of microglial surface immune receptors, including AD risk gene TREM2. DAP12 has been implicated as a central player in an AD-associated microglia specific module. Dr. Luo will investigate the functions of DAP12 in regulating microglia-mediated tau metabolism and inflammation and dissect the molecular and cellular mechanism underpinning these activities.

Congratulations! New R01 from NIH Awarded to Dr. Anna Orr

TDP-43 is a nucleic acid-binding protein linked to neurodegenerative disorders, but its roles in non-neuronal cells like astrocytes are poorly understood. The proposed research will examine how astrocytic TDP-43 affects glial-neuronal interactions and cognitive impairments. These studies will unravel novel intracellular and intercellular molecular mechanisms underlying cognitive deficits in neurodegenerative disease and may reveal promising therapeutic strategies for TDP-43-related pathology...

Congratulations! Debra Abramov from Burré lab has received a NRSA F30 fellowship from the NICHD

Debra Abramov from the Burré Lab has received a NRSA F30 fellowship from the NICHD, to investigate how Munc18-1 mutations disrupt syntaxin-5 stability and general secretory trafficking.

Despite a known genetic cause, no effective treatments exist for Munc18-1 related disorders, which cause intractable epilepsy, severe intellectual disability, and other severe neurologic symptoms in children. The aim of my proposal is to investigate the non-synaptic neuronal deficits that are caused by...
