Robison Collaborations

Rachael Neve, Director of the Viral Gene Transfer Core, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston, MA. [website] Rachael Neve is an invaluable advisor, designer, and producer of the viral vectors essential to all of our in vivo gene manipulations.

Vincent Vialou, Junior Investigator, INSERM, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France. [website] AJ and Vincent Vialou were postdoctoral fellows together in the Nestler lab and continue to collaborate and publish together on the role of ΔFosB in the function of the limbic system.

Ian Maze, Assistant Professor, Department of Pharmacology and Systems Therapeutics, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY. [website] Ian Maze and AJ have been friends and collaborators since working together in Eric Nestler’s lab during Ian’s graduate studies. Ian is a world leader in histone regulation in neurobiology, and helps to guide the Robison lab in many of our epigenetic studies.

Hongbing Wang, Associate Professor, Department of Physiology, Michigan State University. [website] Hongbing provides critical guidance in learning and memory behaviors and collaborates with the Robison lab on multiple projects.

Gabby Rudenko, Associate Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Sealy Center for Structural Biology & Biophysics, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX. [website] Gabby and AJ have been collaborators since he was a postdoc with Eric Nestler. The Robison lab now executes a subcontract to perform biochemical and behavioral assays as part of a collaborative effort led by Gabby to uncover small molecules to manipulate ΔFosB.

Adam Moeser, Professor, College of Veterinary Medicine, Michigan State University. [website] AJ and Adam have become fast friends and are working together to uncover the epigenetic programming of mast cells by early life stress and their role in the gut-brain axis. Their joint postdoc, Natalia Duque-Wilckens, is spearheading this project.

Jeannie Chin, Assistant Professor, Department of Neuroscience, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX. [website] Jeannie is a world leader in the study of hippocampal gene expression in Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy, and she and AJ are collaborating to uncover the effects of transcriptional control of neuronal excitability in the hippocampus in mouse models of these diseases.
