Synapse research awards for Seth Grant

Aug 2016: Congratulations to Professor Seth Grant, who has been awarded two grants on synapse research.

The two grant awards will further our understanding of synapse diversity and enable synaptome mapping.

Professor Seth Grant

The first award is the prestigious European Research Council Advanced Grant that funds a four-year programme investigating how synaptome maps develop and are reorganised by mutations causing cognitive disorders. 

Professor Grant has also been awarded a 3-year Wellcome Trust Technology Development Grant to develop a technology pipeline for mapping individual synapses at the whole-brain scale.  In collaboration with Professors Douglas Armstrong and Richard Baldock this project will generate key reference resources and provide the wider scientific community with a valuable tool for synapse mapping.
