  • James Stieger

    James Stieger

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    BioJames earned his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota. His research was focused on brain computer interfaces using EEG signals. His interests lie in the intersection of machine learning and real-time brain recording. James joined the LBCN with the intent to discover how focal brain activity can be harnessed to decode brain function and how to improve it in conditions such as epilepsy.

  • Minhui Su

    Minhui Su

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    BioMinhui Su, PhD is a postdoctoral fellow at the Neurology Department. She is investigating neuronal activity-regulated glioma growth, specifically how membrane depolarization regulates glioma growth in the tumor microenvironment.

    She obtained her PhD in Molecular Biology, with a focus on neuroimmunology, at the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) at Georg August University Göttingen, Germany. Her PhD research discovered that inflammation is an essential early step of myelin regeneration, and uncovered the roles of microglia (the resident immune cells of the central nervous system) in myelin damage response.

    She enjoys science, art and hiking in her free time.

    Avram Goldstein Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurology and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsInformation transfer at synapses mediates information processing in brain, and is impaired in many brain diseases. Thomas Südhof is interested in how synapses are formed, how presynaptic terminals release neurotransmitters at synapses, and how synapses become dysfunctional in diseases such as autism or Alzheimer's disease. To address these questions, Südhof's laboratory employs approaches ranging from biophysical studies to the electrophysiological and behavioral analyses of mutant mice.
