Group leader of Neuronal Communication lab, at KU Leuven, Belgium (since 2007). Research: Neurons in our brain are organized in circuits and communicate using synaptic vesicles that release neurotransmitters upon fusion with the membrane. We study neurotransmission in healthy and diseased neurons using fruit fly genetics and a variety of functional in vivo assays including electrophysiology, live imaging and electron microscopy with links to Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and ALS.
