Dr. Emily Troemel, Assistant Professor in Biology, Section of Cell and Developmental Biology, University of California, San Diego, will receive research funding from the foundation for the three year period 2011-2013.
Dr. Troemel's proposed research,
Host/Pathogen Interactions in a Simple Animal Host, will seek to elucidate novel innate immune pathways by using genetic methods to identify C. elegans defense pathways that are activated by bacterial infection, as well as the pathogen components that trigger these pathways.2009
Dr. Jill Leutgeb , Assistant Professor in the Neurobiology Section of Division of Biological Sciences at University of California-San Diego, will receive research funding from the foundation for the three year period 2010-2012.
Dr. Leutgeb's proposed research,
Neural Network Mechanisms for the Encoding of New Memories, will focus on how information about the temporal order of events is combined with spatial or contextual information within the hippocampus to form a unique memory trace about what, where and when an event occurred.2008
Dr. Tatyana Sharpee, Assistant Professor in the Computational Neurobiology Laboratory at the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences, will receive research funding from the foundation for the three year period 2009-2011.
Dr. Sharpee's proposed research,
Searching for a Universal Code in Neural Transmission, aims to develop a computational algorithm to analyze the structure of neural code across many different species, sensory modalities, and types of stimuli, as well as across multiple stages of neural signal processing.
