Faculty Mentors

Professor Bonnie Firestein  works in the field of neurobiology, and is interested in mentoring students who intend to pursue a Ph.D., going on to graduate school for research (this does not include pre-med students).  In order for neurons to communicate, distinct proteins must be targeted to distinct sites.  Since the neuron is a highly polarized cell, it is a model system in which to study protein targeting.  Dr. Firestein's laboratory studies the targeting of PSD-95, a protein that localizes solely to sites on dendrites termed the post-synaptic density (PSD).  It is at these sites that interneuronal communication takes place.  Understanding how proteins are targeted to the PSD will help us to understand events underlying synaptic plasticity and long-term potentiation.  Dr. Firestein would like to work with student mentees who are interested in research or scientific writing.
