Neural circuits and neurodegeneration

Chu Laboratory
The Chu Lab aims to identify the cellular and synaptic mechanisms that contribute to progressive degeneration of midbrain dopaminergic cells and the circuit mechanisms that underlie the devastating motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

The Chu Lab is seeking outstanding candidates to fill one to two postdoctoral positions. The project aims to delineate synaptic and cellular mechanisms that contribute to selective degeneration of midbrain dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson’s disease and circuit mechanisms that mediate debilitating parkinsonian symptoms. Experience in brain slice or in vivo electrophysiology recording techniques is required. Learn more here or contact Dr. Chu for more information.
