Akira Minami Akira Minami
B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Phamaceutical Science (University of Shizuoka, Japan, 2000, 2002, and 2005). Worked on mechanisms of long-term facilitation and differences between phasic and tonic crayfish neuromuscular junctions.
Chris Bray Christopher Bray
B.Sc. Honours in Pathobiology with Chemistry (University of Reading, 1993); Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Physiology (University of Reading, 1998); Postdoctoral Research Fellow (University of Birmingham, 1998-2000); Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Assistant Cell Biologist (University of California, Davis, 2000-2007). Investigated roles of glycine and acetylcholine receptor channels on mouse and human sperm function.  Here tracked effects of SNARE protein labeling and movements of SNARE proteins during synaptic transmission at hippocampal synapses.

Vadim Degtyar

Vadim Degtyar
M.S. in Biophysics (Moscow Inst. of Physics & Technology, 1986); Ph.D. in Biology (Ukrainian Acad. Sci., 1992); Fellowships and Research Positions in Free University of Berlin, Stanford, University of Michigan, etc (1993-2007). Investigated regulation of calcium channels by different signaling mechanisms, including G-proteins and SNAREs; regulation of secretory granule motion by Ca2+, mechanisms of chromaffin granule tethering. Here studied interaction of SNAREs in hippocampal neurons using FLIM-FRET approach.
