Research Summary

The Gold lab is a structural and molecular neuroscience lab based in the UCL Department of Neuroscience, Physiology & Pharmacology. We study signalling protein complexes that respond to the second messengers cyclic AMP and calcium. These proteins drive dynamic processes throughout the body including changes in heart rate and insulin release. However, our focus is on protein complexes that regulate synaptic strength which are essential for normal brain function including learning.
