Suman Balasubramanian joins the Pallas Lab

Suman earned her M.S. degree in Medical Neurosciences at Humboldt University in Berlin after completing a B.S. in Microbiology in India.  She worked as a research student in the lab of Johannes Vogt at the Charite’ Medical University in Berlin until 2010, after which she moved to the U.S. for family reasons.  She has several publications out with more to come.  We are fortunate to have someone with her broad skill set in the Pallas Lab.

GFP-labeled cortical neurons

We are employing various strains of transgenic mice that have Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) expression coupled to expression of particular molecules of interest.  This will allow us to identify particular classes of neurons that are part of sensory pathways in the brain.
