Description

Essential Job Functions: Limon lab uses pioneering methods to understand electrical and chemical responses of human neural receptors and ion channels in the multiple dimensions of time, space, and domain (gene and protein expression, biophysics, pharmacology, and physiology) and their role in the resilience/vulnerability to Alzheimer’s disease neuropathology.

The selected postdoc will directly participate in investigating the synaptic mechanisms whereby resilient individuals with severe Alzheimer’s disease neuropathology remain cognitively intact. This information is critical to develop target-directed pharmacological interventions to promote synaptic resilience to neuropathological processes.
