Daniel Alfonso Colón-Ramos, PhD

Associate Professor of Neuroscience and Cell Biology

Associate Professor of Neuroscience

Research Interests

Behavior; Brain; Cell Biology; Neurons

Daniel Colón-Ramos was born and raised in Puerto Rico. He completed his B.A. at Harvard University, his PhD in the lab of Dr. Sally Kornbluth at Duke University and was a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Kang Shen at Stanford University. The Colón-Ramos lab is interested in how synapses are precisely assembled to build the neuronal architecture that underlies behavior. To address this, they developed tools in the thermotaxis circuit of C. elegans. Their system enables unbiased genetic...

Kallol Gupta, PhD

Assistant Professor of Cell Biology

Research Interests

Biophysics; Cell Membrane; Cell Membrane Permeability; Chemicals and Drugs; Mass Spectrometry; Membrane Transport Proteins

Initially trained as a chemist, I was introduced to the world of biology through the aquatic route – I studied toxins from deep sea marine cone snails off the coast of India. Whilst deconstructing the venom library I became fascinated by two things - the prowess of mass spectrometric approaches in analysing complex samples and the world of membrane proteins to which these toxins bind, a world which is omnipresent in regulating cellular physiology. 

In 2013 I moved to the University of Oxford as...
