My research focuses on investigating the molecular mechanisms of action of a small molecule which is developed in Dr. Lin’s lab for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. I specifically focus on uncovering how this small molecule enhances the structural and functional plasticity of tripartite glutamatergic synapse.
