Neural Cell Function Interest Group
The Neural Cell Function Interest Group promotes interchange and hypothesis generation about the biochemical pathways that underlie neuronal, neuroendocrine, and glial signaling in the functioning nervous system. We emphasize first-messenger-initiated signaling through protein-protein interactions that lead to glial activation, neurosecretion, receptor and transporter trafficking and endocytosis, the behavior of circadian clocks, gene transciption and other neural-specific systems behaviors. The group invites eminent biochemists and cell biologists to give lectures on a monthly basis, and will interact with post-doctoral and senior lab members about the state of the art and fundamental questions in neural cell signaling.
The Neural Cell Function Interest Group features monthly seminars given by some of its members, followed by a short "round table" discussion to allow thematic contributions from other members of the group. Sessions will be held in building 49, conference room 1A51 from 2:30-5:00 p.m. on the third Friday of each month. The group moderator is Lee Eiden.
