We are excited to announce that Dr. Poirazi has been appointed a NeuroCure Visiting Fellow at the Charité University of Berlin as of April 1st 2016. The NeuroCure is a Cluster of Excellence in the neurosciences at the Charité ? Universitätsmedizin Berlin and its partners are the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Max-Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC), Leibniz-Institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) and German Rheumatism Research Centre Berlin (DRFZ). Visiting fellows are expected to visit Berlin several times a year, participate in educational events and initiate joint research projects with their Berlin colleagues. This fellowship will support Dr. Papoutsi, a senior postdoctoral fellow in the lab, to use in vivo electrophysiology techniques at the lab of Prof. Matthew Larkum at Humboldt to investigate the role of dendrites on PFC neuronal network function.
Congratulations to Dr. Panayiota Poirazi for her election as an honorary member of the Biological Society of Cyprus (B. S. C.)!
