We are pleased to welcome Rong Xian (Kristie) Chia for a short visit to Professor Peter Somogyi's lab. Kristie is currently studying for a Bachelor of Medical Science at the Australian National University, Canberra. She hopes to extend her research skills and gain insight into cortical neuronal networks.
We are pleased to welcome Minas Salib to the Unit as a Visiting Student under the supervision of Prof Peter Somogyi and Dr Tim Viney.
We are pleased to welcome back Klara Peto from St Istvan University, Budapest, Hungary for a return visit for ongoing collaborative work in Professor Somogyi's lab.
Masanori is originally from Japan, but has been studying in the UK for over 12 years. He is in his 2nd- 3rd year of Preclinical Medicine studies at Oxford University Medical School (Hertford College) and has joined Dr. R.A.J. McIlhinney laboratory to do FHS research project under supervision of Dr. Pavel Perestenko.
He has a keen interest in Medical Sciences and feels that working in the laboratory is a great way for him to appreciate the stringency of scientific techniques and methods as well as an ideal opportunity to gain specific insight into Neuroscience.
We are pleased to welcome Lisa Topolnik as a short-term academic visitor to Professor Peter Somogyi’s lab. During her time in the lab she will collaborate with the group on the synaptic connections of hippocampal interneurons in the mouse. Dr Topolnik is an internationally recognised expert on synaptic pharmacology and plasticity and will also interact with Karri Lamsa.
Bálint Lasztóczi graduated as a Biologist in 2000 at the Eötvös Loránd University of Sciences in Budapest. As an undergraduate his main research interest was the function and the pharmacology of voltage-dependent calcium channels. Continuing in the Chemical Research Center of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest he studied the pathophysiological mechanism underlying high frequency oscillations and their role in the generation of epileptic activity in brain slices.
