The project will ask why lysosomal function is required for normal neuronal development and function. The Fellow will take a multi-disciplinary approach combining Drosophila genetics, gene editing, cell and neurobiology and biochemistry to explore the consequences of lysosomal failure for neural function and to help explain the neural pathology…
