Excited to see the lab’s first original research publication in print and congrats to Jon Wong for his first scientific publication! It was even a featured article. PDF can be found here.
Shekib comes to us from Tom O’Dell’s lab at UCLA where he found unique NMDA receptor differences between ventral and dorsal hippocampus mediated by SK channels that account for differences in synaptic plasticity between those regions. We’re excited to have
We are excited to have MD/PhD student Ariel Jacobi rotating in the lab. As an undergraduate, Ariel worked with David Lynch at UPenn examining the novel possibility of postsynaptic D-serine and its biosynthetic enzyme, serine racemase. She then spent a
Jon presents his poster “Postsynaptic serine racemase regulates NMDA receptors” at this year’s Society for Neuroscience (SfN) meeting in Washington, DC. His poster drew a good audience including multiple luminaries in the field (e.g. Jon Johnson, U Pitt, seen here).

The Whitehall Foundation graciously funded our project proposal entitled “The Fundamental Role of NMDA Receptor Co-agonism” that will attempt to address two fundamental properties of the NMDA receptor: 1) why do NMDA receptors require two chemical signals, glutamate and glycine,
Congratulations Eden, looking forward to participating in the training program with you! http://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/pharmacology/training_program.html
Congratulations to Jon Wong who was just selected to represent the UC Davis College of Biological Sciences at the International Student Workshop in Beijing, China in October! This is a collaborative program between UC Davis, the Nara Institute of Science and
UC Davis, The Center for Neuroscience, and the Gray lab were well represented at the March for Science in Sacramento.
Congrats to Lindsay for getting her first whole cell patch clamp AMPA receptor EPSC recording! Much faster than I did when I was learning e-phys, that’s for sure. And thanks to Eden and Jon for your great teaching!
