Research topic: Molecular mechanisms implicated in long-term memory

Research methods: Electrophysiology, Biochemistry, Cell biology and Molecular biology, including ChIP assay, RT-PCR, FACS, confocal microscopy and behavioral tests.

Main projects in the lab include:

  1. PARP1 mediated immediate early gene expression implicated in long term memory.
  2. PARP1-ERK2 interaction in the nucleus
  3. Memory erasure by PARP inhibitors, possible implications in addiction and PTSD.
