Welcome to Bagni lab! We study the cellular and molecular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and cancer in the context of intellectual disabilities. We are particularly interested in the role that local protein homeostasis and actin remodelling play in regulating synaptic plasticity, brain circuits and behaviour, with a focus on understanding how dysfunctions in these processes can lead to neurodevelopmental disorders.
Currently Bagni lab is based at VIB Center for the Biology of Disease at KU Leuven, Belgium, and Tor Vergata University in Rome, Italy. In 2016 the Leuven branch of Bagni lab will be moving to the Department of Fundamental Neuroscience at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland.
