Professor  Simon Alford

University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, Chicago, IL, USA


Professor Simon Alford is the Chair of Neuroscience and Cell Biology at University of Illinois. He is known among many other contributions for his studies of presynaptic inhibition in the terminals of excitatory and inhibitory interneurons and the effects exerted in a behavioral context. Lately detailed studies of the G- protein- mediated presynaptic modulation of transmitter release, targeting the mechanisms underlying vesicular release in the synaptic terminal including snare proteins and the dynamic role and timing of calcium entry.
