UChicago and MBL announce first recipients of Lillie Awards for Collaborative Research

in, the Robert R. Bensley Professor in Organismal Biology and Anatomy at UChicago and senior advisor to the President and to the Vice President for Research and for National Laboratories. "These projects will bring together scientists who might not have interacted otherwise, with powerful benefits for our community of researchers and educators."

Jorgensen and his colleagues from the University of Utah and Charit-Universittsmedizin Berlin, one of the largest university hospitals in Europe, will use novel electron microscopy imaging techniques to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying synaptic plasticity, a fundamental property of the nervous system. Synaptic plasticity describes the changes to structure and function that occur where nerve cells connect in the brain and is thought to underlie learning and memory. Abnormal synaptic plasticity is linked to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease.

"One of the great remaining mysteries in neuroscience surrounds the issues in the brain that make us uniquely humanhow we think, sleep, learn, and remember things," said Jonathan Gitlin, MBL's Deputy Director for Research and Programs. "Memory is one of the most vibrant and important functions in the human brain, yet we don't know how it works at a fundamental level. How can we approach diseases of memory? This is the frontier, and the new project brings forward cell biology and imaging, which are areas of incredible focus for our partnership with UChicago."

Waterman's research team includes scientists from the NIH, Harvard Medical School, the National Center for Biological Sciences in India, and investigators from the MBL's Cellular Dynamics Program. They will use new technologies in polarization microscopy developed by MBL scientists to study molecules important to cell structure, movement, and form. Cell migration is critical for wound healing, immune response, and development.
