Presented by Dr Jenny Gunnersen, University of Melbourne

Hosted by Professor Elizabeth Coulson, SBMS

Dr Gunnersen’s work, funded by the NHMRC, is focused on the molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling synapse development and synapse loss in the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s disease, and how this might be slowed or prevented and synapse formation/strengthening. She also studies and how these processes contribute to the pathology of psychostimulant abuse and neuropathic pain.
