Can you identify the axon?
New paper accepted!
Another tau paper will be published soon! This time we show that endogenous tau can be mis-localized from the axon to the soma by manipulating microtubules.
Olympus Image of the Year competition
Olympus launched a new global competition for microscope images in life science. I will serve as a judge and hope to have many entries around the globe.
A paper by my graduate student has been accepted in Molecular Biology of the Cell!! I have been really nervous about it, as it was necessary for her to submit her thesis. Relieved……..
New paper accepted!!

New Lab…… (almost)
There was a almost complete turnover of the lab member. Two staff scientists are gone to new institute for permanent positions, and one grad student retired.
But I am very excited to have two new staff scientists!
A giant in Neuroscience has passed away a few days ago.
Rest in peace, Dr. Masao Ito.
