This is an historical archive of the activities of the MRC Anatomical Neuropharmacology Unit (MRC ANU) that operated at the University of Oxford from 1985 until March 2015. The MRC ANU established a reputation for world-leading research on the brain, for training new generations of scientists, and for engaging the general public in neuroscience. The successes of the MRC ANU are now built upon at the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit at the University of Oxford.

Welcome to Prakash

Prakash Guna has joined Dr Jeff McIlhinney' group as a Research Technician.

He obtained an MSc in Biotechnology from University of East London at September 2007. After completing this he joined Prof Ilan Davis' lab at Department of Biochemistry, University of Oxford, as a Research Technician. Here he was working on the project of ‘mRNA localization at the neuromuscular Junction in Drosophila’.  The main focus of the research was to identify localized mRNA in the neuromuscular junction of Drosophila and the work involved fly genetics, molecular biological techniques, microscopy and overall lab maintenances as well as supervising the fly media facility that supplies 12 different groups in the University. He was promoted twice during his tenure and was appointed as a Senior Research Technician in 2010 and in early 2012 appointed as a Drosophila Genetic Technician.
