A unified model of amino acid homeostasis

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
