The process of neurotransmitter release is fundamental to neuronal function. Although elements of the molecular machinery that contribute to this process are known, many questions remain about how they operate together to enact quick and precise release. Building on notable past accomplishments, Dr. Rizo-Rey will lead an ambitious program of studies to identify and reconstitute structural complexes involved in different stages of neurotransmitter release.
