Sandra Bajjalieh Profile

Fields of Research

  • Neuronal cell biology
  • Regulation of neurotransmitter release
  • Lipid-based regulation of cellular processes

Research Summary

Determining how membrane proteins and lipids regulate the functioning of neurons.


Research Statement

We study how organelle membrane composition influences fundamental cellular processes. Our current work is focused on understanding how the composition of synaptic vesicle membranes modulates the release of neurotransmitter from neurons and how lipid modifying enzymes organize and regulate intracellular signaling.
