WELCOME TO THE SANDERS NEUROPALM LAB!

WHAT DO WE DO?

In the NeuroPalm Lab, we are interested in how the protein lipid modification palmitoylation governs protein trafficking and function in neurons. We use a variety of molecular and cellular biology techniques such as CRISPR-mediated gene knockout and mutation, shRNA-mediated knockdown and rescue, confocal microscopy, and specialized palmitoylation assays in primary rodent neuronal cultures and human iPSC-derived neurons.

VALUE STATEMENT

In the NeuroPalm Lab, we want everyone to experience a positive, engaging, hostility-free, challenging, and rewarding environment. Everyone is welcome and valued. Diversity is our strength! We believe everyone regardless of their sex, race, colour of skin, age, national origin, religion, and sexual orientation deserves a fair shot.
