Professor Graham Collingridge honored in Neurochemical Research Special Issue

13 May 2019

Neurochemical Research Special Issue dedicated to Professor Graham CollingridgeHello Bio Scientific Advisory Board Member Professor Graham Collingridge has been honored in a special issue of Neurochemical Research. Professor Collingridge has made wide-ranging contributions to neuroscience but he is best known for the pioneering discovery that long-term potentiation (LTP) in area CA1 of the hippocampus is mediated by the N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) subtype of ionotropic glutamate receptors. LTP is a form of synaptic plasticity, which underlies learning and memory, and Professor Collingridge's discoveries have been instrumental in stimulating further research into the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity.

The issue, which is guest edited by another Hello Bio Scientific Advisory Board member Professor Elek Molnár, contains papers contributed by Professor Collingridge's longstanding friends and collaborators.Topics include the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in health and disease, understanding synaptic plasticity in molecular terms, and how pathological alterations in these processes may lead to major brain disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy.

I feel extremely honored that so many of my friends and collaborators have been moved to contribute to this special issue of Neurochemical Research. I would especially like to thank Professor Elek Molnár for arranging and editing this issue. For me this is a very special issue indeed. Professor Graham Collingridge, Hello Bio Scientific Advisory Board Member

Professor Collingridge joined Hello Bio's Scientific Advisory Board shortly after the company was founded, and he has helped Hello Bio to develop and offer their unique range of low-cost neuroscience research chemicals such as D-AP5, NBQX and TTX - many of which are used to study learning and memory, and mechanisms of synaptic plasticity.

Congratulations to Graham! I would like to echo the sentiment of this special issue of Neurochemical Research. We feel privileged to have Graham on our team and it is fantastic that he shares his expertise, ingenuity and enthusiasm with Hello Bio.We look forward to hearing about the next step in is research journey. Steve Roome, PhD, Co-Founder & CEO of Hello Bio 

The Neurochemical Research special issue in honor of Professor Collingridge is published by Springer and includes articles by accomplished and eminent scientists in the field, such as Min Zhuo, David Lodge, David Jane, Brigitte Potier,Caroline Herron, Tim Benke, and Jenni Harvey.
