Brandeis University Research Update

The Rodal lab submitted their first paper describing the Blazeman-funded work a few months ago (to the Journal of Neuroscience), and the peer reviewers were very positive about it. The reviewers asked the lab to do a few more experiments before it can be accepted, and they’re working very hard on completing those. In the meantime, they are also working very hard on a second paper that incorporates work from mammalian neurons. Drs. Deshpande and Rodal were also invited to write a review article summarizing the current status of the field, and how studying transport in neurons has led to increased understanding of neurological disease.
