Astrocyte Biology Affinity Group
Mission and Goals:
The Astrocyte Biology Affinity Group (ABA) will meet once per month to discuss the biology and physiology of astrocytes. The main focus of these meetings will be the active roles of astrocytes at synapses and in neuronal networks both in the healthy nervous system as well as during and after injury.
Overall we seek to provide a lively and dynamic forum to encourage progress in astrocyte research at UCLA. The format of the meetings will be in depth presentation of data and papers. Participating faculty, students and postdocs will all be expected to present at these meetings.
