This Australian Research Council funded project (DP180101702) aims to understand the functions that amino acids play in brain, in particular in protein biosynthesis and energy generation. We are using a combination of genetic and pharmacological manipulation in conjunction with isotope labelling and NMR spectroscopy to help build our model.
Collaborators: Stefan Bröer, ANU, Brian Billups, ANU, Abhijit Das NeuRA
