Description

Description

Lucas Matt, Ph.D., University of California, Davis, is studying a major ASD gene, PSD-95, the central structural element of post-synaptic excitatory synapses. His focus is a factor called a-Actinin, that he thinks is responsible for PSD-95 localization. Defining how PSD-95 is anchored will fill a crucial gap in information about synaptic structure and could aid in the development of new ASD therapies.
